The Air Carrier Access Act prohibits discrimination based on disability in air travel and requires that all flights on U.S. airlines, and flights to or from the United States by foreign airlines, accommodate the needs of passengers with disabilities. Each airline has their own policies and procedures so calling ahead can help the travel experience go more smoothly.
This guide is designed to offer travelers with disabilities a brief but authoritative source of information about the Air Carrier Access rules: the accommodations, facilities, and services that are now required to be available. It also describes features required by other regulations designed to make air travel more accessible.
