Traveling to Sydney from Europe is a long journey which usually requires two long haul flights, as flights usually stop half way. The most common stopovers are Singapore and Bangkok.
We strongly recommend travellers with disabilities to travel with reputable airlines. At the time this article is published Australian Airlines still impose limits on the number of wheelchair bound passengers traveling on a single flight. We advise travellers to prefer EU carriers because they must comply with EU Regulation 1107/2006. Alternatively we recommend flying Singapore Airlines, one of the best Asian airlines known to provide outstanding quality of service to passengers with disabilities.
