Flybe honored for accomodating travelers with disabilities
Flybe, a UK low-cost airline, has been recognized for exceptional service to the traveler with disabilities. Southampton Centre for Independent Living cited Flybe's "successfully promoting disability equality across its network of routes and putting into place systems that make air travel as convenient as possible for all." Apparently, part of Flybe's success with accommodating all passengers is use of the Embraer 195 jet.
It's a pleasure to highlight an airline that makes travel for people with disabilities easier rather than more difficult than necessary for a change. (Photo of Embraer 195 in flight with Flybe colors courtesy of Embraer)
