To ensure that we can provide the necessary care and attention, we require passengers to complete a Medical Information Form (MEDIF) at least 48 hours before departure. This will allow us to make all necessary arrangements and provide the best possible assistance throughout their journey with Nile Air. Passengers who require wheelchair service but do not have an official medical report stating the type of support needed will be charged USD 60 by Nile Air. This fee covers the cost of providing the wheelchair service to the passenger. Permanently disabled passengers who require assistance at the airport, boarding, and disembarkation, but do not require individual attention during the flight can request this service when booking their tickets. No medical clearance is required unless the passenger's condition calls for special care or attention beyond what is typically provided. We are committed to providing a comfortable and accessible experience for all passengers and are happy to accommodate any special requirements they may have.
If you are traveling with your own manual or electric wheelchair or other assistive devices such as a cane, crutch, walker, or mobility scooter, please note that they will not be included in your free baggage allowance. Due to the limited cabin aisle dimensions, we are unable to accommodate these devices in the cabin, and as a result, they must be stored in the cargo hold as checked baggage. We understand the importance of these devices to our passengers and are committed to ensuring their safe transportation. Our team will take all necessary precautions to ensure that these devices are handled with care and are available for use upon your arrival.
