MONTRÉAL, April 8, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Everyone was in high spirits this afternoon at the end of the 6th edition of the Premium Kids event held at Montréal-Trudeau airport! A unique experience for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) or functional limitations, the day allows them to become familiar with the airport process and reduce their fear of flying.
Again this year, nearly 100 children, accompanied by their families, experienced the journey of a traveller through an airport, from arrival at the parking lot to enplaning and watching a demonstration of safety measures on board.
This event is organized by Aéroports de Montréal in conjunction with the following partners: Air Transat, Autisme Montréal, Giant Steps, Special Olympics, Transport Canada, CBSA, CATSA, Securitas, HMSHost and the Montréal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel.
This initiative is inspired by a similar program, Wings for Autism, created in 2011 by the Charles River Center in collaboration with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Boston-Logan International Airport).
