Stansted Airport has launched a new guide on disabled access to the airport.
The service is free to use on line.
The new guide has been developed in partnership with DisabledGo, founded by wheelchair user Dr Gregory Burke, who has been working to provide better information about access since 2000.
The airport was assessed in person by DisabledGo surveyors who looked at each stage of the passenger journey.
The access guide talks people through the accessibility of the airport, including transport, check-in, security and departures, together with the help available. It also provides detailed information, including walking distances to toilet locations, fixtures and fittings, dimensions, signage, hearing assistance and lighting.

A spokesman said: “We are committed to giving disabled people and their families the confidence to fully access the airport and have the best trip possible.”
