Passengers at Stansted Airport face the longest walk from check-in to departure according to a new survey.
At the Essex airport travellers face a walk of over a kilometre or three quarters of a mile. At Luton Airport they may have to walk up to 822 metres or 900 yards.
Travel organisation Abta say many travellers who have difficulty walking only request assistance once they arrive at the airport, which may be too late.
This can lead to them having to make their way across terminals on foot or miss their flight.

A war veteran from Bishop's Stortford who was conned out of £9,000 in a phone scam has welcomed new plans to stop financial fraud.
Cyril Banks, 91, had his life savings taken three months ago. Now Fraud experts and banks have teamed up for a National Campaign called 'Take Five' to give better advice on how to spot scams.
It comes as new figures show a sharp rise in cases.
Backing the campaign, Home Office Security Minister, Ben Wallace, said:
The impact of financial fraud can be devastating on victims, with fraudsters using increasingly cunning and convincing tactics.
They prey on people who are trying to get on with their lives but in a moment where they are busy or distracted become vulnerable.
The message of the Take Five campaign is don't be hurried or hustled, take a moment before you give out any personal information.
At the same time, the Government is working closely with law enforcement and the banking sector through the Joint Fraud Taskforce to take action to stop the organised criminals behind financial fraud.
