Our son who has been diagnosed with Autism had never been on a plane before and we had booked a trip to fly to Manchester, UK from Dublin Airport, Ireland. We were feeling a bit apprehensive over the whole journey as our son is constantly on the move so queueing for security, passport control and to board the plane would be difficult for him.
A friend of ours recommended getting the Important flyer lanyard/wristband for travelling through Dublin Airport for passengers with Autism. This reduces time in queues and meant we could be fast tracked through security and have reduced time queueing to board the plane.
When we showed the staff at Dublin Airport the lanyard they were really helpful and they ensured we didn’t need to queue. Overall the flight journey to Manchester to Dublin was a success and not having to queue really helped things go smoothly. Our son was relaxed on the flight and we all enjoyed it the journey.
We would highly recommend availing of Important flyer lanyard/wristband at Dublin Airport.
We requested the lanyard by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with copy of a letter from our GP confirming our son has been diagnosed with Autism. We received the lanyard in the post within a week. Thank you to Dublin Airport.
