IndiGo is the only airline in the world that regularly operates with a boarding ramp allowing wheel chairs to be taken right into the aircraft effortlessly. But as some airports are not equipped with boarding ramps, the company has taken some steps to ensure that their passengers especially the elderly and differently able are still taken care of. With the help of Vin Grace, IndiGo has made another first in terms of airline services. "IndiGo is proud to be the first airline in India with dedicated stair lifts for passengers with special needs" a spokesperson for the budget carrier said. "At airports around the country that do not use ramps, we will be introducing these motorized chairs that enable passengers to board and deplane in complete comfort."
Aircraft boarding/deplaning is a big issue tackled by many airline industries. It has also been a source of ire by many passengers especially from the elderly, differently able and their affected families. Boarding/deplaning the plane can be a big challenge to many especially to those who experience mobility issues. Some airlines use ramps while others impose stricter rules to their passengers. The addition of mobility enhancing equipment such as a stair lift is a big help to these people.
