A very useful service for less mobile visitors at Spanish airports is called ‘Sin Barreras’, which means No barriers. All passengers that bring along their own wheelchair or actually need to borrow one have to present themselves to ‘Sin Barreras’. They will then receive a yellow card. This yellow card is essential to enter the allocated access via passport control.
The airport also features various Yellow posts or poles that are labelled ‘Sin Barreras’. There is a button that can be pushed to call for assistance located directly on these poles. After using this button to call the ‘Sin Barreras’ team via their intercom an assistant with a wheelchair can then meet the traveller.
