Many passengers face differing challenges when navigating an airport; requiring a multitude of solutions and discussions to ensure the airport environment is an accessible one.
Ensuring the airport environment is accessible for all is still a top priority, and will be influential in helping traveller confidence to return post-COVID-19.
Therefore, International Airport Review spoke to three organisations regarding how airports should further consider improving accessibility:
- From accessibility to inclusivity
Kirk Goodlet, Director of Terminal Operations at Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (YWG), anticipates the needs of future passengers.
- Have you considered a hackathon at your airport?
Niamh O’Brien, Head of Dublin Airport’s The Future Factory, explains how hackathons have led to the creation of accessibility concepts that have greatly improved the PRM experience within the airport.
- Designing for dementia
Joshua Jones, Architect at Weston Williamson + Partners, provides an overview of the challenges people with dementia face when travelling through traditional airports, and the techniques available to combat them.
