Barrier-Free Travel at Munich Airport


To offer greater ease and convenience for passengers with reduced mobility, Munich Airport is now putting a new-generation boarding platform into operation – the Medical High Loader. It is designed to transport arriving and departing passengers with disabilities to and from the aircraft quickly and in comfort. The new high-tech device has many advantages, for example, the 15-passenger transport cabin can be raised or lowered while en route, which speeds up the transport of the passengers considerably. It can also be lowered sideways, allowing passengers to board and disembark at ground level. The first of the four new high loaders is already in operation.
