medical & special requirements - The Travelchair & Support Harness
Monarch are pleased to announce they are one of only two airlines to offer the MERU Travelchair onboard.
What is the TravelChair?
The TravelChair is a unique chair that fits into a standard airline seat giving firm, postural support for disabled children whilst they fly. It is suitable for children from 3 – 11 years (depending on their size). The adjustable headrest, footrest and body harness provide various levels of postural support which can allow even severely disabled children the option to fly.
Monarch do not charge for this facility and can be requested through our customer services department.
All Monarch Cabin Crew are trained in the installation and use of the TravelChair.
Support and Cares Harness
The Cares Harness has been designed for children age 1 year and older who weigh 22-44lbs (10-20kg) and whose height is 40 inches (100cms) or less. The child must be able to sit upright unassisted.
The Cares Harness is available upon request from our customer services department at no extra cost.
We offer a support harness for both child and adult passengers with special needs.
The child support harness is suitable for children between the ages of 10 and 15 years and the adult support harness is designed for adults with special needs from 16 years plus, although the harness used will be dependent upon the size of the child/adult.
The Support Harness is available upon request from our customer services department at no extra cost.
