A Disability Users Group has been formed, comprising representatives from a broad range of organisations to ensure that any decisions relating to future developments are fully communicated.

The service PRM is available daily between 05:00 and midnight and shall be extended for situations such as delayed / diverted flights outside of normal hours of operation.
