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.
