Aegean Airlines WCAG Design Adaptation

  • nikolas grigoriou

Aegean Airlines is the leading airliner in Greece and the specific project refers to the adaptation of the website based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards. The website had to be fully accessible to all by complying with the many and diverse requirements provided, regardless of impairment or disability. The adaptation of the design followed an in depth research, and the 'switch colour mode' functionality was designed to provide sufficient contrast to people with different types of visual impairments. Furthermore, full navigation access by the keyboard only, alternative text to the images and other theme-specific techniques were implemented, providing the best user experience possible.
