For safety reasons, Cathay Pacific may require some passengers to travel with a safety assistant that can provide them with assistance in comprehending and responding appropriately to safety instructions from cabin crew and/or assist them to evacuate the aircraft in the event of an emergency. A safety assistant may be required if the passenger:
We are unable to provide passengers with any assistance for personal care needs inflight such as eating/drinking, administration of medications, elimination functions including assistance inside the lavatory, or other personal care needs. If you require assistance with any of these, we recommend that you travel with a personal care attendant or make alternative arrangements.
The safety assistant or personal care attendant must be self-reliant and mentally and physically able to provide the passenger with the assistance required.
