As the UK's second busiest airport not serving London, Birmingham Airport has a range of facilities to cater for disabled passengers. The airport meets the EU standard for mobility assistance for disabled people, with features including:
Airparks offers numerous Birmingham Airport parking options for disabled passengers, including off-airport parking, on-airport parking and Meet & Greet services.
Airparks Birmingham is an off-airport parking facility that is located conveniently close to the airport. Wheel-chair friendly transfer buses operate 24 hours a day, running every 25 minutes. In most circumstances, we are able to arrange for a staff member to drive your car to the airport terminal for you. Once you have been dropped off, the professional, uniformed chauffeur will drop your car back off at a secure Airparks car park, where it will remain for the duration of your stay (this service has to be pre-booked). We also offer a park it, check in service, allowing disabled customers to check-in from their car using a hand-held device.
There are large disabled parking bays in the short and medium stay car parks, which are all situated a short distance away from the terminal. Disabled passengers are able to park for up to four hours in disabled bays in the short-term car park. For longer parking stays, disabled passengers can park in the multi-storey car park on the ground floor. From here the main terminal is then accessible via a covered walkway. There is an 'assist' button at the entrance / exit to the car park should disabled passengers require further assistance. Birmingham Long Stay Car Park 1 has a limited amount of disabled parking spaces; these are allocated on a first come-first serve basis and cannot be booked in advance.
Airparks' Stress-Free Meet and Greet parking is an ideal option for disabled passengers who want to minimise the hassle of airport car parking, and get on with their travels. With this service, a professional driver meets you at the terminal and parks your car for you in a secure Airparks car park, allowing you to make your way to the terminal. When you return from your trip, your car will be picked up and delivered to you at the terminal drop-off point, leaving you to make your way home quickly and with minimum fuss.
All Airparks car parks come with a Best Price Guarantee, meaning you are certain of paying a fair price for top quality service and reassuring professionalism. Our staff are friendly and approachable and will be happy to help you should you need any assistance.
