Visitor’s Guide for Customers with Disabilities at Bangor International Airport
Bangor International Airport is fully committed to providing universal access to all public facilities and services for all of its customers. To assist travelers with disabilities, information is provided here on accessible services.
The Domestic terminal has two levels – upper level for departures and arrivals and the lower level for ticketing, check-in, baggage claim and car rental. The International Arrivals Building has three levels – level one is reception, level two has departures and arrivals, level three is administrative offices. Both terminals have accessible ramps from the curbside to the terminal and elevators. Passengers can be met curbside, at baggage claim, or at the security checkpoint.
Only ticketed passengers with boarding passes are allowed beyond the security checkpoints. If a passenger with a disability requires assistance to/from the gate or medical equipment such as oxygen at the gate, a pass provided by the airline must be shown at the security checkpoint.
In case of emergency, audio visual fire alarms and an automated external defibrillator is available on the second floor of the Domestic terminal at the top of the escalator.
The elevators are located in both terminals and are equipped with raised Braille buttons, emergency call buttons and are accessible to wheelchair-bound patrons.
Airport shuttle buses used for transportation to the Shuttle Lot when it is open (operates seasonally) are equipped with wheelchair lifts.
Taxis: The airport has an open taxi system served by numerous taxi operators. Patrons who need taxis with wheelchair lifts are encouraged to contact a taxi operator directly in advance of going to the curb. This will save time versus waiting at the curb for an accessible vehicle to be called by the dispatcher. Click here for a list of taxi operators.
