Travel Tech Members Join the Department of Transportation’s Accessible Air Travel Awareness Campaign
Spreading Awareness of the Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights
In celebration of the 37th anniversary of the Air Carrier Access Act, the Travel Technology Association (Travel Tech) and several of its member companies joined the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) #AccessibleAirTravel Campaign to raise awareness about the rights of people with disabilities to safe, dignified, and accessible air travel.
Alongside Travel Tech, member companies Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport, BCD Travel, and CWT are partnering with DOT and joining the campaign. They are among other entities, including airlines, airports, and disability organizations, that are raising public awareness.
“We are proud to partner with the Department of Transportation to build awareness about the rights passengers with disabilities have when flying,” said Laura Chadwick, President and CEO of Travel Tech.
The campaign brings awareness to the Department of Transportation’s Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights, which describes the fundamental rights of air travelers with disabilities. The Department provided a summary video to empower individuals with disabilities to understand and assert their right to accessible air travel.
The Travel Technology Association (Travel Tech) empowers traveler choice by advocating for public policy that promotes marketplace transparency and competition. Travel Tech represents the leading innovators in travel technology, including online travel agencies, metasearch engines, short-term rental platforms, global distribution systems, and travel management companies.
