AirAsia India, in conjunction with the Helen Keller Institute for the Deaf and Deafblind, launched a braille in-flight safety document for visually impaired passengers on International Day of Persons with Disabilities. In addition, wheelchair assistance can now be pre-booked while purchasing a flight ticket on the airline's website and app, according to a press statement. The announcement noted that wheelchairs used to assist customers in being seated within the cabin are thinner, allowing for simpler manoeuvring in the aircraft's aisle.

"These facilities are provided to guests along with convenient seats, at no extra cost," it said. The airline also stated it has designated special help counters with priority services for those with disabilities at all 17 airports from which it operates.
