If you require special assistance while travelling, please speak with your airline or travel agent when booking your flight. Your airline or agent can help with:

  • Reserving specific seats on the aircraft.
  • Providing wheelchair or mobility assistance from check-in to the departure and arrival gate to reclaim your baggage.
  • Ensuring you have the any medical clearances you need to fly.


Any further questions may be answered on your airline's website; refer to their special assistance policies and procedures for more information.

There are two dedicated disabled car parking bays at the Tennant Creek Airport terminal carpark.

Toilet facilities

Dedicated disabled toilet facilities are located within the terminal.

Assistance dogs

Certified guide dogs, hearing dogs or other assistance dogs that assist a person with a disability are welcome inside the terminal under the Guide, Hearing and Assistance Dog Act 2009. Certified assistant dogs should be wearing the appropriate badge on their coat or harness and people accompanied by a dog, including trainers, must also carry an identity card. 


First aid Kit

There is a first aid kit available at Tennant Creek Airport. The kit is primarily for use during an emergency or first aid incident, however, should a traveller or carer require a private room to administer medication, for example, we can provide access. To arrange access, travellers first need to contact the Airport Supervisor.
