Gatwick Only UK Airport Featuring Two Disabled Changing Rooms

Gatwick Airport Disabled Changing RoomsLondon Gatwick airport announces the opening of two new disabled changing facilities, one in the South and one in the North Terminal. 

 

In recent times, Gatwick airport has been working hard to improve its services for disabled passengers with the purpose of making travelling through Gatwick more comfortable for Passengers with Reduced Mobility.

 

"These amenities mean that air travel has now opened up to a broader range of PRM passengers," a spokesperson for Gatwick airport said. 

 

The new facilities include toilets that self-flush and also help wash and dry the person. There is also a bed that lowers to ground level and adjustable wash basins, with all of these incorporated in a wash room with full shower facilities.

 

Gatwick management shared credit for this improvement with Margaret Clough, founder of the Changing Places charity.

 

Mrs Clough has a disabled daughter called Julie, and campaigns in the UK to promote airports to tackle some of the challenges of travelling. 

 

"Margaret got in touch with one of our Terminal Managers, Wayne Tomlinson, ten months ago requesting adult changing facilities and worked closely with him throughout this project," Gatwick management explained. “After consultations with Margaret, we went a step further to develop and install facilities that will help carers more easily wash disabled adults."

 

Prebooking to access these facilities is not required. Disabled passengers can make use of them by approaching the PRM team desk at the airport on the day of travel.
