CHALLENGE

Lima Airport Partners (LAP) to host 1970 athletes during their travel, wanted to provide discovery and wayfinding applications for the athletes with visual and hearing challenges. Boni offered an accessible navigation application to be installed independently at the airport terminal.

SOLUTION

The application, namely Sígueme Lima Airport, has been designed by the assistance of Asociación Yo Soy Sus Ojos in Lima that is working for blind and visually impaired. With their help, a complete accessible app developed to provide navigation and guidance within the airport.
