Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program

Not all disabilities are visible - some are not immediately obvious, such as autism, chronic pain, dementia, anxiety, visual or hearing impairment. Living with a hidden disability can make daily life more challenging for many people, but it can be difficult for others to recognize, acknowledge or understand the challenges you face.

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is proud to partner with the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Organization to make CLT more accessible for passengers with hidden disabilities. Starting June 30, 2021, passengers can request sunflower-branded items at the terminal. These items discreetly indicate to stakeholders around CLT, including staff, colleagues and health professionals, that they may need additional support, help or a little more time.

  • Airport Information Desk (Ticketing)
