Air Carrier Access Act’s 30th Anniversary
The Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) prohibits disability-based discrimination in air travel and requires air carriers to accommodate the needs of passengers with disabilities.
In preparation for the 30th Anniversary of the ACAA, we are seeking your help in showing the progress that has been made as well as highlighting the work that still needs to be done to accomplish the spirit of the ACAA.
Visit www.airaccess30.org to share your stories, photos, videos, and graphics about your air travel experiences as a passenger with a disability.
