April 2018

As Charity Partner, Passenger Experience Week provides Orbis with an incredible opportunity to raise funds and awareness in the aviation industry.

If you’re attending the show please visit Orbis on stand 2U03 where you can enjoy a virtual tour of the incredible Flying Eye Hospital, the world’s only accredited ophthalmic hospital on board an MD10 aircraft, and find out more about its role in the fight against avoidable blindness.

Orbis is grateful to Passenger Experience Week, which has selected Orbis as the events’ first ever Charity Partner. The organising team have generously provided Orbis with a stand at the event along with many on-site and online branding and marketing opportunities to raise awareness amongst the thousands of attendees.

We are immensely grateful to Passenger Experience Week for choosing Orbis as its charity partner. The event presents an amazing opportunity to engage with attendees at the show and to share the story of how the aviation and medical worlds have come together to make a real difference to people’s lives. Thanks to the support of partners such as Passenger Experience Week, we can provide vital operations to children suffering with cataract, train local medical staff so that they can help more people within their community, and continue to work hard across the globe to ensure that no one experiences blindness unnecessarily

Orbis will also be asking companies who exhibit at the show to consider donating to the charity. They have recognition packages for donations of £1,000 and £5,000 and would be delighted to discuss these, as well as opportunities for larger contributions to their work. For more information please visit the stand, email Kathryn, Head of Corporate Partnerships, on [email protected] or visit How your company can support Orbis.

We have long been looking for the perfect charity partner for Aircraft Interiors Expo, and we are delighted that we have been able to partner with such an inspiring charity as Orbis. By giving a platform to Orbis at Passenger Experience Week, the full spectrum of companies across the aircraft interiors sector can learn how aviation is giving people around the world access to quality eye-care, no matter where they live.
