Japanese airline forces disabled man to crawl aboard

Hideto Kijima has been embedded with the help of friends in his flight abroad.

But in the return leg of Amami Island, airline employees told him that for security reasons, he would not be allowed to register if he could not climb stairs without assistance.

In response, M. Kijima left his wheelchair and handed him the stairs with his arms.

M. Kijima is an experienced traveler and head of Japan’s accessible Tourism Center, a non-profit organization that lists accessibility issues to tourists in Japan.

He says he has visited more than 200 airports in 158 countries since he was paralyzed at the waist in a school rugby accident in 1990.

In a blog post, he said that where facilities were not available to passengers with reduced mobility, he relied on the help of friends or staff members as possible.

He said that although travel has sometimes been difficult, he was never informed that he could not board a plane.

He told Japanese television Nippon to be “surprised” by the strict rule. “I wondered if the airport staff did not think it was wrong,” he said.

Vanilla Air, a subsidiary of All Nippon Airways budget line, apologized for the incident and announced new measures to help wheelchair users at the airport.

The company’s website now says that although it could not provide a boarding gate at Amami airport, it will provide a special chair for this purpose.

“We regret that he caused this test,” a company spokesman told AFP news agency.

There have been several other incidents this year that involve passenger processing by airlines.

In April, a US physician of Vietnamese origin was dragged from a United Airlines flight to Chicago by police officials after he refused to relinquish his seat voluntarily.

A video of the incident posted online has caused a massive game against the airline, forcing it to change its policy and to pay an agreement with the injured doctor.
