Aiming to bring more comfort to all types of passengers, J&C Aero’s Flight Experience team presented new in-cabin markings with Braille signs that are aimed at helping people with vision loss to have a better orientation inside an airplane. 

While the world, in general, becomes more accessible to blind people, aircraft as one of the main means of transportation still remains a place where a blind person can hardly orient without assistance from other people. With this in mind, J&C Aero developed highly durable, tactile placards that allow passengers to read the information in Braille. Placed across the cabin, Braille signs may help individuals with vision loss to find their seat location, as well as get directions to lavatories and the closest exit. 

“Even though people with visual impairment will always receive assistance from the crew or fellow passengers, it doesn’t mean that nothing should be done to make the flight experience more comfortable, more independent. Braille placards are a step forwards in making an airplane cabin more friendly to blind passengers. Of course, such placards require more durability than non-tactile markings due to understandable reasons, however, their production and installation are relatively easy, and any airline could equip such during a C-check without substantial additional costs,” explained Maksim Jurkov, Head of Design & Airworthiness at J&C Aero.
