At SNP we care about each and every one of our customers and over the weekend we were proud to support Albury Airport’s Airport Getaway. Airport Getaway is a community event aimed at helping families who have children with autism become more comfortable with the air travel experience.
Families were given the opportunity to experience an “air travel rehearsal” to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, checking-in luggage, going through security screening, boarding and disembarking a plane, and retrieving their luggage. The event attracted close to a hundred people with the simulation encapsulating the entire travelling process, with the exception of taking-off!
The air travel experience is often overwhelming for children with autism, and holds many families back from travelling on planes. Airport Getaway was a success, with feedback from families being overwhelmingly positive. Many noted the experience managed to reduce their children’s stress, and that they felt more confident and willing to fly.
David Costello, Albury City’s Team Leader of Airport Operations, has given special thanks to SNP’s representatives Karen, Kim, and Carolyn, for their caring support and professional manner during the event.
SNP has proudly been part of Australia’s aviation security sector for over 45 years and we look forward to being involved in more events to help boost travellers’ confidence and alleviate the stress of travelling families.
