Win an easyTravelseat!
easyTravelseat makes wheelchair air travel easier and safer.
Most wheelchair users will tell you, one of the most challenging parts of taking a flight is transferring into one of the aeroplane’s cabin seats. easyTravelseat is designed specifically to help.
Not every commercial airport in the UK is equipped with transferring equipment and many European airports are also the same. easyTravelseat is a personal in-situ transfer seat that travels along with you and can be used with or without a hoist, giving peace of mind for air travellers with reduced mobility looking for a comfortable, quick, dignified and safe transfer to and from the wheelchair to an aircraft seat.
How does the easyTravelseat work?
It is placed into the wheelchair prior to getting into your chair and once placed, you then sit on top of the easyTravelseat. You will then travel to the airport with the device instantly ready for lifting by special assistance onto the aircraft, meaning you’re not needed to be shuffled around to get other equipment around you. You will remain in the easyTravelseat throughout your flight and are lifted with it, back to your own wheelchair at your destination.
Sitting on an easyTravelseat during your flight is more comfortable and supportive than sitting on an airline seat or aisle chair, with a choice of different pressure alleviating cushions helping the lower back and bottom. Furthermore, it provides greater options to keep you safe during emergencies than current aircraft protocols; it can be used for instant evacuation where necessary.
Travelling with easyTravelseat removes the stress and anxiety throughout your entire air journey, ensuring your safety, dignity and comfort comes first, while providing additional benefits to special assistance and the airlines for boarding and disembarking.
easyJet founder, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, says: “As is often the case, the simplest ideas can be the best. (It’s a) near-perfect solution to the indignity, discomfort and embarrassment experienced by disabled people when trying to access aircraft seats.”
Meanwhile, other customers have enjoyed a variety of positive experiences in the seat such as accessing cars, boats, beaches, concerts – and even a pool to swim with dolphins! All this, with maximum simplicity and minimal fuss.
