Accessibility Manager - Gatwick Airport

Sara Marchant

Sara has spent the last 10 years at Gatwick Airport, helping to improve the passenger experience.

She has varied and extensive operational management experience, having spent many years running the security operation. 

Latterly, she has been focused on improving accessibility, with particular regard to hidden disabilities, and is now the full-time Accessibility Manager for the airport. She particularly focuses on training and awareness, engagement with charities and support groups, and working with project designers to make new and upgraded areas of the airport accessible.

Sara is working with various service providers, charities and support groups to help raise awareness regarding hidden disabilities. She understands that airports are confusing and complex places at the best of times and aims to work with industry experts to understand how we can learn from them and utilize that knowledge to make air travel accessible for everybody.

Sara is speaking exclusively at our 2019 Annual conference: Disability leading the way.
