Travelers with Disabilities

In Hawaii, we take pride in being a welcoming place for all travelers. The Disability and Communication Access Board (DCAB) of the Hawaii State Department of Health has compiled a list of Hawaii Traveler Tips for Kauai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu and the island of Hawaii, with a comprehensive list of transportation options, equipment rentals, service animals and more. The DCAB website also provides information on emergency preparedness and parking for persons with disabilities.

Airline Transportation 

Most airlines provide assistance to passengers with special needs through their skycap (porter) service and are able to transport personal wheelchairs, including folding, collapsible or non-folding manual wheelchairs, electric/battery-powered wheelchairs and electric-powered carts. Typically, 48 hours’ advance notice and one hour for check-in on your day of departure is needed for any electric/battery-powered chairs. Please advise your airline in advance to arrange for any special services. 


Air Carrier Access Act  

The Air Carrier Access Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in air travel. The Department of Transportation has a rule defining the rights of passengers and the obligations of airlines under this law. This rule applies to all flights of U.S. airlines, and to flights to or from the United States by foreign airlines.
