Arizona Airport Tips: Traveling as a Wheelchair User


PHX and TUS Airport Accessibility

Being a wheelchair user has plenty of challenges, especially when it comes to traveling. It’s good to know, however, that airports have plenty to offer when it comes to accessibility. If you’re traveling with someone utilizing mobility aids, then here are a few factors you need to consider when traveling through Arizona’s major airports.

Phoenix Sky Harbor

As one of the country’s busiest airports, Phoenix Sky Harbor has a multitude of facilities that allow for accessibility among people in wheelchairs.

Restrooms – The airport is filled with handicapped-accessible restrooms with large stalls. Each terminal has at least one family restroom with caregiver access and a private area to change clothing or disposable undergarments.

Tucson International Airport 

Similar to Phoenix Sky Harbor, Tucson International Airport also hosts plenty of wheelchair-accessible facilities for the needs of your family members.

Restrooms – All restrooms at TUS contain at least one larger stall with grab bars for individuals with accessibility needs. Aside from that, similar to those at Sky Harbor, there are also spacious Family Restrooms that can accommodate those who need them.
