Travel advice for parents and carers of children on the Autistic Spectrum

Welcome to Manchester Airport’s ‘Airport Awareness’ book to help parents and carers of children on the Autistic Spectrum understand what will happen on their journey through Manchester Airport.

We realise at Manchester Airport how stressful travelling through an airport can be for children on the Autistic Spectrum, especially when it’s a break in their routine and they are unsure of what to expect. This book will take you on the journey through Manchester Airport, using photographs to explain the process you will take. It has been divided into the various stages of your journey through the airport, describing what you will see and hear, from arriving at the airport, going through security and through to returning back home.

We have created this book in conjunction with advice from the National Autistic Society, Autistic Society Greater Manchester Area and Bolton Kidz2gether.
