The United Spinal Association has released an updated version of Accessible Air Travel: A Guide for People With Disabilities.
The revised edition includes expanded regulations for the Air Carrier Access Act. This is the law that mandates air travel accessibility for people with disabilities. The revised edition includes the new regulations that take affect on May 13, 2009.
This helpful booklet informs individuals with disabilities of their rights as passengers on commercial airlines and how to adequately prepare to ensure
their air travel experience is enjoyable. It also provides valuable insight on a multitude of air carrier procedures, such as information about requirements
for foreign airlines, what to expect in terms of equipment liability, how to file a complaint, and airport screening requirements.
