Transportation of blind/deaf passengers

When transporting blind/deaf passengers, the air carrier may ask for a relevant document and the presence of an accompanying person. To avoid misunderstandings please clarify this issue in advance when purchasing tickets from the carrier whose services you want to use.

If a blind passenger is accompanied by a guide dog, the dog is allowed to be transported free of charge in the passengers’ cabin of the aircraft in addition to the free baggage allowance, BUT an official document has to be provided about the passenger’s condition and the dog’undergone special training. During the flight the guide dog must be muzzled, seat at the feet of the passenger and be tied to his seat.

At Ufa airport there is a special walking place for guide dogs located to the right of the terminal 2.

If you have additional questions, please contact the airport staff by the following number: +7 (917) 435-53-56 (round the clock).
