Airlines need to consider the folks with Hearing loss!

Changes in air travel communication could help those with hearing loss

Contributed by Lisa Packer, staff writer, Healthy Hearing | Thursday, July 7th, 2016

It is no secret that air travel has become more and more unpleasant in recent years. Oversold flights, minimal food service and airlines’ desire to squeeze more passengers in by eliminating legroom are just a few of the indignities travelers must suffer in order to get to their destinations. But for those with hearing loss, airplane travel can be particularly difficult. Hearing loss affects everything from pre-flight boarding to gate change announcements and in-flight communication, leading to frustration and misery.

challenging.

Especially for those with hearing loss, we still have a long way to go until all passengers can travel with equal access to services. Fortunately, vocal advocates have targeted a few specific areas of air travel communication to make the expression “flying the friendly skies” more of a reality. Even better? You can help.
