AIR CANADA INTRODUCES NEW SAFETY BRIEFING CARDS IN BRAILLE/LARGE PRINT
 NEW YORK, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Canada has introduced new, easy-to-read safety briefing cards in braille and in large print, for use by its passengers with visual impairments.
 All aircraft will be equipped with the special cards outlining emergency aircraft procedures, such as information on exit locations and the proper use of oxygen masks and life jackets. Developed with input from visually impaired passengers, the cards will be distributed during the routine safety briefing before take-off.
 "This initiative reflects Air Canada's ongoing efforts to provide accessible transport to everyone," said Claude Charland, In-flight Safety, Systems & Marketing manager, Air Canada, Montreal.
 The airline provides a number of special services for customers with special needs. For example, seeing-eye guide dogs are permitted in the passenger cabins (except on flights to the United Kingdom), and all passengers with disabilities can pre-select their seats when making reservations.
