Need an ADA-compliant room, refrigerator or other service to accommodate your pulmonary hypertension (PH) challenges?

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)
Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. Each of its seven terminals is more than a mile long, which might make walking difficult for some people with pulmonary hypertension. If you need wheelchair assistance to navigate the terminals, tunnels and underground train, contact your airline before you depart. Make sure you request wheelchair assistance at your home airport and in Atlanta for both legs of your trip.
Each airline has representatives to provide wheelchair assistance at the airport, but you might encounter long lines if you wait to request assistance at check-in.
On the day of your flight, get to the airport early in case you have to wait for a wheelchair.
