How to Request Assistance
To ensure the airport is prepared, you need to apply for this service prior to your journey and highlight what assistance you will need. Try to be as specific as possible when highlighting your needs, as this will help the airport to make appropriate arrangements.
You can request assistance directly with Alicante airport, or by informing your airliner. Our advice is to inform your airliner, as they can then request assistance with your departure and arrival airports, as well as providing you with a seat on the plane that is more suitable.
If you wish to request assistance directly with the airport, then inform them at least 48 hours prior to your departure. If you can, try to give more than 1 weeks' notice, so the airport has as long as possible to make advanced arrangements. Do not worry if you forget, or if you have made a last minute booking. The airport will still make every effort to help you, but it may take a little longer than normal, so please be patient.
Assistance can be requested by calling the AENA helpline on 902 404 704 or (+34) 913 211 000. You can also make a request online at wwwssl.aena.es.
