At BlindSquare Enabled Airports

  • BlindSquare’s value begins when stepping outside and connecting to GPS satellites.
  • BlindSquare will also make available scheduled flight information, with the caveat that for most airports this information should be used with caution as this information does not include live updates.
  • For airports covered with Apple Maps indoors, the service will enable the creation of personal points of interest (POIs) in a manner identical to travel outdoors.
    Travellers arriving at BlindSquare Enabled Airports, whether by ground or air, will be able to activate BlindSquare Airport Event and automatically be provided with free use of the app for the next seven days. This access remains active when the user arrives at their destination, regardless of whether that airport is BlindSquare Enabled – so that users can complete their journey and connect to local ground transportation, hotels and amenities. When returning to any sponsored airport, app access is renewed for another seven days to facilitate the journey home.

Join us, in the celebration of independent travel as the ribbon is cut on Global Accessibility Awareness day 2017.  Press releases will be released in tandem with national blindness organizations in Canada and New Zealand (Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) and Blind Foundation) and the US sponsor (Bank of America).

Example Story

A traveller arrives at a BlindSquare Enabled Airport by car.  BlindSquare EVENT is started (or newly downloaded) from the iTunes store.  EVENT is automatically “enabled for use for 7 days”. The traveller flies to any world destination, knowing that they will continue  to have access to EVENT for 7 days to complete their journey on arrival.  Step outside, and things become easy and entertaining.  Hailing an UBER, picking a restaurant, searching for an address or a feature of interest - all at their fingertips.  This, regardless of location and regardless if the destination airport is BlindSquare Enabled.

When they fly back to their home airport, EVENT is restarted and automatically “recharged” for 7 more days, to support the continuation of their journey, home.

Step outside, the world is described as the journey continues.  This, to encourage and support independent travel for persons who are blind/partially sighted, freely offered.
