Cornwall Airport Newquay is proud to announce they have become members of the global Hidden Disabilities Sunflower.  They will provide passengers with non-visible disabilities free Sunflower lanyards, so they can discreetly identify themselves to airport staff, making it easier for them to receive the assistance they need.

The Sunflower was first introduced at London Gatwick Airport and has since been adopted by several airports worldwide.  It lets passengers discreetly indicate that they require additional support, such as extra time to navigate the airport or assistance with check-in or security screening.

By providing Sunflower lanyards to passengers, Cornwall Airport Newquay aims to make the airport experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible for those with hidden disabilities.  They have trained their terminal teams to recognise the Sunflower and provide the necessary support and assistance to those wearing it.

Kelly Jones, Passenger & Customer Services Manager, Cornwall Airport Newquay said:

“We are committed to making travel accessible to all our customers, and we understand that for some people, travelling through an airport can be a stressful experience. We are proud to support the Sunflower and to be able to offer our passengers the additional support they may need to make their journey as comfortable as possible.”

Paul White, CEO, Hidden Disabilities Sunflower said:

“We are delighted that Cornwall Airport Newquay has joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower network. Cornwall is a destination of outstanding beauty, and it is important that access to help, patience and understanding is open to passengers with non-visible disabilities so that they too can enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer.”

Passengers travelling through Cornwall Airport Newquay can request a Sunflower lanyard from the Information Desk Team.
