Program helps children with disabilities feel more comfortable with flying
For many of us, flying on a plane can be a scary thing. For children with disabilities, it can be a difficult and unpredictable experience.
To help make children with disabilities feel better about flying, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is launching a new program called "Wings for All". This program lets kids practice everything needed to fly, from going through security and getting their boarding pass to actually getting on the plane.
The program hopes to make the flying experience better for children with disabilities and their families, while also giving airport staff a chance to understand their needs while traveling.
