Flying the Skies with Autism-Friendly Airlines
Traveling in general can be a timely and stressful experience, especially with a child. From checking in, clearing security, boarding and everything encompassed in traveling by flight can all be very challenging. It only gets more difficult when you have a loved one with autism. Airlines and airports can be hit or miss when it comes to how they handle families with children and can make or break your trip. One autism-friendly airport, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), is an airport that is keenly aware that your flight experience will set the tone for your entire trip.

To ensure the best flight experience possible, LAX has partnered with All Nippon Airlines (ANA) and is holding its annual Autism Flight Experience Event! This is a free event that will be hosted on Saturday, February 25th, 2017 at LAX. This event will provide families with autism the exclusive opportunity to experience the process of flying – from ticketing, screening, and actually boarding and sitting in an airplane. Guests will even have a chance to experience a simulated airplane flight on ANA!
To partake in this experience and practice with your child before an upcoming trip, come and join ANA at LAX! Families wishing to participate please email Darcy Driscoll at: firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, February 15th.
