Connecting Islandersto the World.



Launched in 2017 by Autism Nova Scotia and the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, Autism Aviators is a program that aims to ease the travel process for individuals on the autism spectrum. Because individuals with autism have different response to sensory stimulation and dislike unfamiliar situations or breaks from their daily routine, it can present challenges when it comes to air travel. By getting comfortable with airport processes, individuals with ASD along with their families can gain familiarity and confidence they need to take future trips.

When travelling always let your airline know in advance when you book your tickets that you have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and require additional accommodations. It is also important to let them know if you are flying on your own.

Below are printable resources prepared by Autism Nova Scotia and the Halifax Stanfield International Airport that will prepare you or your family for travel at most airports:
