SAUDIA introduces Braille flight guide

Saudi Arabian Airlines has become the world’s first airline to introduce a comprehensive flight guide in Braille for visually-impaired and blind passengers.

The guide will be available on both domestic and international flights, said Mr. Abdulrahman Al-Fahad, VP Public Relations.

He said the integrated services now offered by the airline aim to enable passengers with disabilities to travel comfortably, starting from booking and ground services to inflight services, including special meals and distinctive services that meet their special needs.

Mr. Al-Fahad said that SAUDIA is among the world’s best airlines in providing services to people of special needs. “As a result of this distinction we have received a number of awards,” he said.

The airline offers all of its services to the disabled and disadvantaged through trained and well-qualified staff. “We also provide elevators for them to board our flights in addition to special meals,” Mr. Al-Fahad said.

SAUDIA has printed menus, safety procedures and magazines in Braille and made them available on our flights.

SAUDIA has imported a state-of-the-art Braille printer to transform all of its lists and applications into Braille as part of this new and impressive service.
