Our Brief

London City Airport is one of the UK’s fastest-growing airports, with expansion plans well underway to give them the capability of handling 8 million passengers per annum by 2030. To accommodate and support an increasingly diverse range of people and different nationalities the airport needed to provide accessibility and live translation solutions on its website to help everyone access important travel information with ease.

Our Solution

To support people from all over the world and people with different disabilities London City Airport implemented Recite Me assistive technology on their website with the aim of revolutionising the way passengers can read and understand content online. 

To improve a website visitors’ time on site, Recite Me assistive technology allows visitors to customise the London City Airport website according to their varying accessibility and language needs.
