According to FTE, “Ranging from the Japanese Sign Language Interpretation Service 2 and the introduction of barrier-free speakers to assist travelers with hearing impairments, to its investment in educating staff in how to support customers who require special assistance and the enrichment of accessible information across its digital platforms, Japan Airlines continues to display true leadership in this field.”
