Scene Traveller

Flynas, the Riyadh-based airline, has launched the first programme of its kind in the Kingdom to train its airline cabin crew in sign language.

The programme’s objective is to enable Flynas’ cabin crew to effectively communicate with passengers who have hearing impairments, with a specific focus on mastering sign language. The training encompasses various stages of passenger communication, from welcoming and boarding procedures to in-flight service, including safety measures and farewell procedures upon arrival.

Flynas has previously implemented similar initiatives to improve accessibility, such as training for ground service staff and airline cabin crews in interacting with passengers with autism.
