Assistance for passengers requiring special assistance

Tsaradia wants to offer the best travel experience by offering the best comfort conditions at the airport as well as on board. To do this, Tsaradia has set up a set of services adapted to the needs of people in need of special assistance or people with reduced mobility to offer them a serene and safe journey.

To ensure the smooth running of your flight, please inform us in advance of any disability, mobility impairment, visual or hearing impairment, or mental health disorder that requires special attention on our part at the airport or during your flight.

Passengers requiring a wheelchair

If you are travelling with your wheelchair, or if you wish to benefit from wheelchair assistance, or any other need for mobility assistance for travel to the airport, please inform us at least 72 hours before departure.

You can inform us when you purchase your flight ticket or when booking the assistance service by using the special assistance form or by contacting our customer service at +261 20 23 444 44.

The Service is available to passengers requiring a wheelchair :

  • to reach an/or depart from the gate

Inform a boarding agent or crew member if you need assistance hearing important updates related to your flight.

The traveller may not need assistance at the airport, but it will still be necessary to inform the boarding and on-board staff if the traveller is deaf or hard of hearing. 

This will allow ground and on-board personnel to inform the passenger of the on-board safety briefing and any significant flight updates.

If the traveller is accompanied by a certified service dog, the dog must be reported in the booking file.  The guide dog or accompanying dog is transported free of charge in the cabin and is exempted from wearing the muzzle.

    • the availability of seats necessary for the installation of the stretcher,
    • availability of the necessary oxygen kit and cylinders during flight and transit time,
    • the possibility of boarding the sick passenger on board.

    On the day of departure, the medical team of the Air Madagascar clinic at Antananarivo airport or the Medical Service at airports in the province must validate or not the boarding according to the condition of the sick passenger and especially if his condition has worsened since the purchase of his ticket.

    If the passenger’s condition is critical, Tsaradia may refuse boarding even after payment of the ticket, other assistance services and the commencement of a multi-leg flight. Depending on the passenger’s condition, this arrangement may also be taken before each departure in the case of multi-leg/transit flights.

    Tsaradia may refuse to transport an EVASAN passenger if the required conditions cannot be met.
