easyJet.com is an important part of this, it’s where most trips start. There’s plenty of information for passengers with diverse access needs within our help pages in order to make their journey with us as easy as possible.
To help us ensure our website and apps are easy to use, we are working with leading accessibility and user experience consultancies who have significant experience in web accessibility and designing websites that can be used by anyone, regardless of impairment or ability.
We are committed to ensuring everyone can access our website, including people with vision, hearing, mobility or cognitive impairments. We employ a standards-based approach to development, adhering to the principles and guidelines set out in the technical standard and strive to achieve conformance Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) - published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We do this alongside more ‘practical’ accessibility techniques through regular testing and consultancy using a range of users with diverse needs.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that our website and information is as accessible as possible, there are certain areas where we know we can improve or have limitations that restrict the level of accessibility. One of these areas is colour contrast. We are aware that our orange branding is harder to read when used with other similar colours. We have taken every step to ensure that where possible the orange is paired with a suitably contrasting colour to improve the readability of our content.
Ultimately, the best testers for accessibility are our users. If you happen to experience any difficulty using our website, please let us know. You may also be interested in the website AbilityNet.
