Until now, very little research has been done on the issue of air travel for people with dementia. Without adequate information, it is difficult for people with dementia, their carers or airport and airline staff to make informed decisions about the feasibility of travel or to ensure the experience is as safe, comfortable and stress-free as possible. Maria O’Reilly and Nicole Shepherd report on their study which is exploring the issue from the perspective of people with dementia, their carers, airport staff and flight crews, with the aim of developing guidelines and resources to make air travel easier for people with dementia
