Manchester Airport, in conjunction with Strzala Architects, BAM Construction, Clos-o-Mat and campaigner Tony Clough, has launched brand new Changing Places facilities in each of its three terminals.
The facilities have been designed to meet the needs of passengers who have profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) and other passengers with severe disabilities who need the support of at least one carer, providing them with a safe and easy toilet facility to use when travelling through the airport.
The equipment for the Changing Places, which includes features such as a height-adjustable changing bench, an overhead track hoist; a peninsular toilet, privacy screens and increased space, giving passengers and their carers the facilities they require.
The Changing Places facilities are located airside in each of Manchester Airport’s three terminals, which represents the biggest commitment in the UK to the Changing Places Scheme to date, and can be used by any passenger, adult or child who requires it.
