    Travelling to French overseas territories with a disability

    The beaches of Guadeloupe, Martinique cocktails and the musical accent of the markets in Saint-Denis, Réunion Island. Yet still, you’re not sure that the local infrastructure can give you a truly secure welcome. No need to worry, to allow you to have a confident journey, we’ve cleared the way for you...ready to go?

    From your point of departure, when flying Air France, you have at your disposal the free services offered to handicapped passengers through the Saphir programme. To benefit from this great initiative, you must give at least 48hrs notice in advance of your scheduled flight if you require this service. Those passengers who have use of their upper limbs will be accompanied if travelling alone. Those passengers who don’t have use of their upper limbs will be helped through check-in with their baggage, boarding the flight as well as on arrival.
