TSA Launches New Hotline # for the Disabled

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has launched a new helpline number for air travelers with disabilities and medical conditions.

You can call TSA Cares toll free at 1-855-787-2227 before you travel for answers to questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint.

TSA recommends that passengers call about 72 hours before traveling so that when needed, TSA Cares can coordinate checkpoint support with a TSA Customer Service Manager at the airport.
