Aira Access for Blind, Low Vision, at JFK Terminal 4

Aira Ccess for people who are blind or have low vision has been rolled out at New York - JFK Terminal 4 / International Terminal at no cost to users if they use their smartphone. Apparently, Aira Access is already available, free of charge to individuals using Aura Guest, in several locations. Other for pay plans are available as well.

Aira Access, an app and service from Aira, a company that focuses on using technology to assist blind and low-vision people. The program connects a passenger with an agent who acts as a guide and uses the passengerís smartphone camera as well as GPS data to help him make his way through the terminal while avoiding obstacles and crowds of people.

At (JFK) Terminal 4, a traveler can use Aira Access (free of charge) to check flight status, go through a security checkpoint, walk to a gate, find luggage, and use a self-service kiosk, as well as visit restaurants and shops within the terminal.

Itís frustrating to me they donít list all locations with Aira Access. The closest I can come is a statement on their site, and Iím sure not every store or location will offer this service.

Locations Ė free to use while in a growing number of locations like Walgreens, AT&T stores, airports, and federal buildings.
