    Heading out to Vegas in ten days and will be taking my mother who has mobility issues. My questions are
    1. if we borrow the airport wheelchair, will we be able to go between terminals 1 and 3?
    2. Will a porter take her there also?

    Thanks in advance!! ✌️✌

    I can't answer this 100%, but I don't think they would just let you take one of their wheelchairs. So, they'll take you from one to the other I would bet. But, why do you have to change terminals?

    Sorry, my bad! I might have mistakenly said T 1 to T 3, but what I meant was D gate to T 3 ( being from Hawaii, Hawaiian Air comes in to terminal 3)

    You don't borrow a wheelchair. You need to contact the airline at least 48 hours in advance to have a porter with a wheelchair meet you as you de-board. They will take you anywhere in the airport that is accessible.

    The wheelchair service is run by contractors, but the airline has to pay for it, so they have to arrange it.

    at SW we just grab a chair for my wife. I usually push her to plane. Board first. And when we get off there are wheelchairs waiting.

    When we book our flights we request wheel chairs, they are there waiting to take us to what ever gate we need

    Is it mobility or walking long distances? Maybe one of those fancy electric carts that the airport runs would work?

    Just call the airline or airport and let them know what you need. They'll take care of it.
