The Prince George Airport Authority is committed to ensuring each and every passenger can travel without barriers.
We are continually improving the user experience for everyone and implementing a number of different programs and service offerings to ensure a positive travel experience.
Hidden Disabilities Sunflower program
Passengers travelling out of the Prince George Airport now have access to the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program. This initiative is a simple tool for passengers to voluntarily share that they have a disability or condition that might not be immediately apparent, and would need a little extra help, time and understanding while onsite.
How does the program work?
If you or someone you are travelling with has an invisible disability, you may choose to wear the Sunflower lanyard as a discreet way to indicate to our airport staff that you may need a little more help or time when going through the airport processes. Wearing the Sunflower lanyard is voluntary. The Sunflower lanyard provides a helpful identifier to airport staff to best assist and support anyone with an invisible disability.
Where can I pick up a sunflower lanyard?
You can pick up a free Sunflower lanyard at the Info booth, any airline check in counter or the security desk.
Will this sunflower lanyard be recognized at other airports?
Yes, most major airports in North America are part of this program. Please click here to find out what airports recognize this program.
Where can I find more information about this program?
To learn more about the Sunflower program, please visit their website.
If you require assistance during your flight, the airline will be in the best position to assist you, and you should continue to request special assistance services from your airline.
** Please note that this program does not allow users to skip the security line, ignore COVID-19 related health measures, or behave in a way that may compromise the well-being of airport staff or the traveling public. It is a reminder to airport staff to show extra compassion, allow time for additional assistance, and let those travelling with these hidden disabilities feel comfortable and confident.

Accessibility of the Website
Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.
