The Department of Transportation (DOT) Proposes Air Travel Accessibility Requirements

November 14th, 2011

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has introduced supplementary consumer protection requirements for airline passengers in an effort to make flying more convenient and hassle-free.

The proposal by the DOT would require airlines to make their websites accessible to individuals with disabilities and ensure that their ticket agents do the same. This proposal would also require airlines to make automated kiosks at U.S. airports accessible to passengers with disabilities.

This plan is the latest in a series of DOT steps to carry out the Air Carrier Access Act, and to ensure equal access to air transportation for all travelers.
These new requirements will expand travel opportunities for individuals with disabilities and allow for easier access at airports.
