SAUDIA Braille guides

Saudi Arabian Airlines has committed to providing services and products onboard for all visually impaired guests.

In 2015, SAUDIA became the world’s first airline to introduce a comprehensive flight guide in Braille, and this year marked World Braille Day (4 January) by extending the service across in-flight entertainment (IFE) and cuisine options.

Passengers can select a Braille cuisine option at time of booking through a simple step while making a booking from the airline’s website or by calling SAUDIA. IFE options include audio descriptive movies and content onboard.

Saudi Arabian Airlines prints all material in-house with its full-spectrum Braille printer in order to transform all materials and applications, such as special meals and menus, safety procedures and magazines in Braille for in-flight use.

Commenting on the services provided by the airline, Chief Executive Officer of SAUDIA, Captain Ibrahim S. Koshy said: “SAUDIA is committed to being an inclusive airline, providing amenities, services and support for all guests. We take pride in making our very best efforts to provide a comfortable, welcoming and hospitable experience from each point of the journey.”
