Hovertravel hosts open day for World Autism Awareness
As part of World Autism Awareness Week and for World Autism Awareness Day itself, Hovertravel is holding a special open day on Tuesday 2nd April when visitors will be able to meet the staff, crew and pilots of Hovertravel, whilst being hosted by the HoverCare team.
Recent specific additions to the HoverCare facilities have been the introduction of a safe haven in both terminals and the opportunity to borrow ear defenders during the Hovertravel experience.
This ‘try before you fly’ approach has been designed to help customers get the best insight for any future visits and Hovertravel is encouraging visitors to bring their friends and family along too, to try out the hovercraft and learn about the HoverCare services.Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, adds: “We recognise that we are still evolving our HoverCare services and events such as this give us the chance to better understand the needs of those on the autistic spectrum whilst giving our visitors a behind the scenes tour of our hovercraft, with the opportunity to ask whatever questions they wish. Our Try Before You Fly events are open to anyone whom might want to chat to us about accessibility. “
As well as discovering how simple it is to use the hovercraft for travel between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, all visitors will be given a free ticket for two people and be issued with a HoverCare card.
The hovercraft will be open for all visitors interested in learning more about our accessibility at Southsea 1100-1230 and as space is limited, please register each person attending
