Gill Earl, Managing Director, at SigncodeUK said: “Working with British Airways and making the Deaf community aware of the services available to them is a privilege and honour. British Airways is an iconic British brand, who are committed to accessibility, not only for their customers but also their colleagues who strive to make it the best airline in the world.

We are proud to help them on their accessibility journey by bringing together our professional media translators with BA’s own Frederick Da Costa on their first BSL video.
