El Paso International Airport is delighted to announce it is partnering with the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Network to assist passengers with disabilities that are not immediately visible, just in time for the busy holiday travel season.
Under the Hidden Disability Sunflower program, people with disabilities can choose to wear a lanyard bearing a sunflower logo as a subtle way of letting others know that they may require additional support, assistance, or a bit more time during their trip.
El Paso International Airport partners and staff have been trained to identify the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower, gain a deeper understanding of hidden disabilities, and learn how to approach and support customers with a hidden disability.
To help raise awareness about this customer service program, the El Paso International Airport will make lanyards available free of charge to passengers with an upcoming flight. Travelers interested in receiving lanyards can pick one up in person at the information desk located in the Visit El Paso Gift Shop or by calling the operator at a courtesy phone. If you would like one mailed to you in advance of a trip please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. Lanyards will be made available while supplies last.
