Air travel for people with reduced mobility promises to be easier. Prototype developed by design studio priest Jud, in the United Kingdom, allows a system to be installed on aircraft by which motorized wheelchairs can be attached to seats, without having to leave passengers to travel.

Dubbed “Air 4 All,” the idea, in a free translation, circumvents the resistance of airlines, who feared losing revenue when they needed to scale back seats so there was room to carry carriers, and those with special needs.

“Air 4 solves this problem and has the added advantage of allowing airlines to maintain their cabin design at every seat, ensuring brand consistency and a cohesive experience for all passengers, who enjoy the same comfort, safety and dignity,” says the designer and president. Reverend Goode, Paul Priestman, to Design Boom.
