The Calgary Airport Authority and its many partners have developed an airport familiarization program – YYC Navigators - for individuals who would benefit from becoming familiar with airport processes and procedures from curb to gate, prior to their actual flight.
YYC Navigators is tailored to meet the needs for families who are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As airport processes are unfamiliar for many, and some families are unsure if they can travel due to sensory and communication challenges, many choose to not travel by air. By giving families affected by ASD the opportunity to become more familiar with airport processes, flying can be a more pleasant and viable option.
