Air Access

Britain's leading transport designer, Priestmangoode, unveils the future of accessible air travel, just in time for Paralympic Games.

Britain’s leading transport designers, Priestmangoode have been hard at work revealing a design that transforms air travel for passengers with reduced mobility (PMR). Their timing is spot on as the Paralympic Games are only a few days from commencing.

“Air Access is a much needed concept for the future of airline travel that will provide a pleasant experience for passengers with disabilities or reduced mobility” says Paul Priestman.

Air Access is a concept that aims to reduce the indignity and discrimination that PMRs face when travelling by air. The concept comprises two elements; a detachable wheelchair that allows the passenger to be transported on and off the plane without discomfort, and a fixed frame isle seat on the aircraft, which the wheelchair is mated to create a regular airline seat.

The future of airline travelling has arrived and everyone can enjoy its benefits.
