Winning the gold award in the Special Needs category is a nod to CVG’s partnership with Seven Oaks Farm to bring miniature therapy horses to the airport’s Terminal twice a month. Simply put, the program eases passengers’ anxiety and puts smiles on faces.
The silver award in Special Needs recognizes CVG’s effort to make travel by air stress free and available to all. The Terminal videos are located on CVG’s website to allow travelers to watch the videos prior to their flight in order to easily navigate various areas of the airport. The videos have a special accessibility feature for visual and hearing impaired individuals.
