Car Rentals

Most car rental agencies offer vehicles with hand controls if given 72 hours notice prior to arrival. Contact your rental agency for reservations and additional information.


Elevators are conveniently located on each side of the airport terminal by the security checkpoint and baggage claim. In addition, elevators are located in the parking garage. All elevators have Braille and raised numerals.


Customers with Handicap placards may park in the Short-Term or Long-Term lots and will only be charged the Long-Term Parking rate for the length of their stay. In order to receive the discount, please provide placard, name and phone number to the cashier upon exiting.


All airport restrooms have an extra-wide stall with side railings and are accessible to individuals with wheelchairs or walkers. A family/unisex restroom is also available.

Security Checkpoint

Individuals requesting access through the security checkpoint must have a boarding pass. If you need assistance to your gate, a friend or relative may request a pass from your airline. Passengers with disabilities should advise Transportation Security Administration (TSA) staff of any special needs prior to screening.

Service Animals/Pet Relief Area

Service animals are welcome throughout the airport while assisting their owners. Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. Please visit our new pet relief area, LEX Pets, which is located post-TSA security checkpoint. This area is designed for passengers traveling with service animals or pets, who may need a bathroom break prior to getting on their flight. LEX Pets is located in lower Concourse A, and it contains waste bags and receptacles for your convenience.


Please contact your airline for wheelchair assistance to and from your airline gate. If you encounter problems locating an airline representative, please visit the Information Center.
