Needing help to organise transfer from Frankfurt Airport to Cologne for disabled person

by bobjan13

My husband and I are travelling to Cologne for him to receive stem cell treatment for motor neuron disease. We are flying in and out of Frankfurt from Australia and will need a private transfer in a vehicle that has a wheelchair lift. It is very urgent that I find this information as we are due to arrive on 20 November.
Can anyone put me in touch with a service that can accommodate this request???

Frankfurt has direct access to the train - according to the Die Bahn site you should be able to arrange this thru them, look at:

Why don't you want to use the direct ICE trains from Frankfurt Airport to Cologne.
They are easy to access by wheelchair and have special places for wheelchairs. And they are much faster than by car. And a smoother ride for your husband.

Exception: if you fly with Lufthansa "fly" to Cologne Hbf (the main train station, IATA airport code QKL).
