Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program

Punta Gorda Airport recently joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower exists to help those with disabilities that are not immediately obvious such as autism, chronic pain, dementia, anxiety, visual or hearing impairment. Our aim is to help make the invisible, visible.

Passengers can request a Sunflower Lanyard by contacting CThames@FlyPGD.com or calling 941-205-3276 at least 7 days prior to your arrival at PGD. A lanyard may be mailed to you or made available for pickup. Our staff, TSA, and airline partners are being oriented to the program so they can help recognize adults and children with hidden disabilities.

Wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower discreetly indicates to people around the wearer, including staff and fellow travelers, that they need additional support, help or a little more time.
