January 2021 699
Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia), the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia, marks World Braille Day (January 4) and is committed to providing services and products onboard for all visually-impaired guests.
Cuisine options – as well as inflight entertainment – on Saudia aircraft, provide convenience and choice for guests who require Braille offerings. Inflight entertainment options include audio descriptive movies and content onboard.
Guests can select a Braille cuisine option at time of booking through a simple step while making a booking from the airline’s website or by calling Saudia.
The airline provides services such as elevators, special meals and menus, safety procedures and magazines printed in Braille for guests.
Saudi Arabian Airlines prints all material in-house with its full-spectrum Braille printer in order to transform all materials and applications in Braille for inflight use.
Commenting on the services provided by the airline, Chief Executive Officer of Saudia, Captain Ibrahim S. Koshy, said: “Saudia is committed to being an inclusive airline, providing amenities, services and support for all guests. We take pride in making our very best efforts to provide a comfortable, welcoming and hospitable experience from each point of the journey,”
He continued: “We invite all of our guests to explore the various options and flexible choices available to customise the travel experience and tailor requests to suit our guests’ requirements.”
In 2015, Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) became the world’s first airline to introduce a comprehensive flight guide in Braille for visually-impaired and blind passengers. - TradeArabia News Service
