The Most Accommodating Airlines for People with Disabilities


People with impairments want to know the most accommodating airlines for domestic and international travel. When it comes to air travel, people with disabilities need an airline that has trained personnel to assist them through the terminals, sufficient space to accommodate the width of their assistive devices, and more time for situating themselves aboard the aircraft. Navigating while traveling is already a challenge, but for someone who has an impairment or disability, air travel can become nearly impossible.

How Are Airports Becoming More Accessible to People with Impairments?


When the United States passed the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), it became illegal for airlines to discriminate against passengers who had an impairment. The law applies to any airline that provides air transportation to, from, or within the United States. Not only does this law cut down on discrimination, but it also requires airlines to provide assistance for passengers, such as a wheelchair, guided assistance for all areas of boarding, or seating accommodation.
