Championing Accessible Travel: Onboard Hospitality Awards 2024 spotlight new category

The Onboard Hospitality Awards are breaking barriers with the launch of a new category for 2024, Best for Onboard Accessibility. This move highlights the crucial role of accessible travel in today’s diverse world.

This category is more than just an award – it’s a celebration of inclusivity. It aims to honour airlines, hospitality services and travel products that prioritise making travel easier for people with disabilities.

Beyond meeting regulations, it’s about creating an environment where everyone feels welcomed and empowered to explore the world.

The significance of this initiative goes beyond the awards ceremony. It’s a call to create a world where diversity is not just acknowledged but celebrated. By championing accessible travel, these awards inspire change across the industry.

Who can enter?

As the January 31 2024 deadline approaches, now is the time to spotlight your accessibility initiatives.

Perhaps you represent an airline that has introduced a new accessibility strategy.

Or, maybe you provide an IFE system or cabin elements designed to help those hard of sight or hearing.

Maybe your seats are designed to support wheelchair users, or your amenity kits and crew are well-positioned to comfort neuro-diverse passengers.

If you provide or feature any element of onboard service that has been designed with accessibility in mind, then enter the awards today. It’s not just about winning, it’s about setting a new standard.

This commitment isn’t just a passing trend; it’s a moral obligation – an affirmation that everyone, regardless of ability, deserves the chance to experience enriching travel.

Entries close January 31 2024. Good luck!
