The Aira Airport Network is expanding with the addition of five new airports just in time for holiday travel. Four airports across the United States and one in New Zealand, serving a combined 40.7 million passengers per year, now provide free Aira service to any blind or low-vision traveler.
The latest additions include San Diego International Airport, John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, OH, Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport, Tucson International Airport, and Wellington International Airport in Wellington, New Zealand.
Aira Access is free and easy to use on any iOS or Android smartphone. Paying Aira subscribers also have the option to purchase Aira’s Horizon Smart Glasses for a hands-free experience. Anyone who is blind or has low vision can use Aira for free at Aira Access airports to get up-to-the-minute flight information, navigate security, use self-service kiosks, find restaurants and services, identify baggage, and more.
London’s Heathrow Airport joined the Aira Airport Network on December 3. Heathrow is the third-busiest airport in the world, serving 78 million passengers per year.
The Aira Airport Network will continue to expand in 2019 to serve more blind and low-vision travelers throughout the world. Stay tuned for more great additions in the coming year!
