Airlines under pressure to better accommodate wheelchairs

KIM Jago is lobbying Australian airlines to purchase a machine that will make it easier for people in wheelchairs to travel overseas.

Ms Jago, who has a severe mobility disability, is preparing for a trip of a lifetime, but for that to happen she needs help getting on a flight in Hong Kong, so she can return to Australia.

"My condition is deteriorating," she said.

"I don't know how long I'm going to be here for and I'm trying the very best to fulfil a few of my bucket list dreams and this (trip) was one of them."

Her story has resonated with disability groups around the world and she said she will not stop until she sees industry-wide action.
