Disabled passengers who want to travel by air are now entitled to increased rights under measures adopted by the European parliament.

It will now become illegal for a disabled person to be refused airline tickets because they are disabled.

A wheelchair will also have to be provided by the airport for disabled passengers who are embarking and disembarking from aircraft within the EU.

Previously, the responsibility to assist disabled passengers had been shared between airports and airlines.

If you are planning on making an overseas journey, you might wish to consider booking your airport hotel room in advance.

Going online and using the internet to book airport hotel accommodation is extremely fast and efficient.

You can compare hotel prices with the touch of a button, enabling you to find the cheapest deals.

Airport car parking can also be reserved at the same time, although many airport hotels offer free airport parking for the duration of your trip, when you book one nights' accommodation.
