Hoist to transfer in Aeroplanes/ No to manual handling

MSmum99MSmum99 Member Posts: 26 Courageous
Has anyone come across a hoist to transfer you from wheelchair into a plane used in any uk airports/airlines? I cannot stand/transfer and as I'm not particularly light found the indignity of manual lifting into transfer chairs by airport staff distressing. I'd love to fly again but won't do so until I can be hoisted. I've read online that Norway have banned all manual handling at airports - should we campaign for the same?
