Why This Survey is Crucial
Air travel is challenging for many disabled people and can pose huge issues for those with postural seating needs. Addressing these challenges requires a deeper understanding of the unique experiences and needs of these travellers.
Nothing about us without us, right?
This survey is a step towards making air travel more accessible, safe, comfortable, and dignified but first, we need to give them information! Your participation could help shape better flying experiences for many future travellers.
The survey, initiated by Driving Mobility and conducted by ableMove Ltd, aims to collect 200-250 responses to contribute to a broader report on enhancing air travel accessibility. It targets individuals who require additional postural support while seated, especially in an aeroplane seat.
Here’s a breakdown of the survey:
- Objective: Gather insights on the air travel experiences of those with postural seating needs.
- Conducted By: Driving Mobility and ableMove Ltd.
- Data Handling: Your information will remain anonymous, and stored securely for up to five years post-publication.
- Benefits: On completing the survey, you will receive a £5 Amazon gift voucher.

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. By participating, you are not only sharing your invaluable experiences but also contributing to critical research to foster better travel experiences for disabled people.
Your insights are crucial. Take the survey, share your experience, and help drive a positive change in air travel for all.
