Larnaca International Airport. The Eagle Passenger Lifter

Larnaca Airport has purchased new equipment for people with reduced mobility and disabilities. Designed to lift people from their own wheelchair into an airport wheelchair or aisle chair and vice versa. The Eagle Passenger Lifter avoids manual handling and therefore reduces the risk of injury and discomfort.

For most people their holiday begins at the airport once they’ve checked-in their luggage and are finally able to relax. However, for disabled travellers this is not always the case.  This is because they often still face a lot of uncertainty and worry about getting on and off the aircraft safely.
