Requesting assistance from your airline

If you are not accompanied by or met at the airport by a friend, relative or business associate, it is important that you contact your airline to inform them of any assistance you may require, e.g., a wheelchair (departing and arriving), specific seating requests, specific kinds of foods, etc.

Security measures restrict public access beyond passenger screening to ticketed passengers only. However, airlines will allow persons with special needs to be accompanied by health care assistants or guardians. If a friend or family member wants to accompany an elderly or disabled person to or from the aircraft gate, they need to obtain permission from the airline.


For your convenience, there are reserved parking spaces for travelers with disabilities on every level of the parking structures and in the short term parking lots closest to the terminals. To park in these reserved spaces, official license plates bearing the disabled designation or other official documents issued by a municipality or state of residence must be prominently displayed.

The parking structures at DTW cannot accommodate vehicles over 7’ high. It is recommended that you park in either the Yellow or Green surface parking lots and take a shuttle to the appropriate terminal. To arrange for a wheelchair accessible shuttle van, please call 800-642-1978.

Detroit - News Update

A new terminal, runway, access road, hotel, parking facilities, and other capital improvement projects have dramatically improved the travel experience for those visiting Metro Airport and the greater Detroit region...but we're not done yet.

Northwest Airlines’ Phase II project to improve and add gates to the McNamara Terminal began in the Spring of 2004. Nine jet gates are being added to Concourse B (for a total of 17) and 16 RJ-compatible gates are being added to Concourse C (for a total of 41) along with luggage handling systems, moving walkways, escalators, etc. Various aspects of the project will come on-line in stages, and you can see new structural steel changing Detroit Metro’s skyline. The jet gates should be done by the end of February 2005 and the entire Phase II project should be complete in Summer 2006, when the McNamara Terminal will total 122 gates.
