It is vitally important for travelers with disabilities and their companions, travel agents, and others involved in air travel to know what to expect from the time an airline reservation is booked to the moment the flight touches down. To assist passengers with disabilities the federal government passed the Air Carrier Access Act of 1986 (ACAA) which affects all aspects of air travel. This booklet provides people who use wheelchairs and other mobility aids with all the information they need to have a safe and enjoyable flight.
