Public Meeting on Air Travel by Persons Who Use Wheelchairs
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is hosting a public meeting regarding air travel by persons who use wheelchairs on March 24, 2022. During this meeting, there will be an opportunity to listen and learn from persons who use wheelchairs on the difficulties that they encounter during air travel and for airlines to discuss both the challenges that they face in providing accessible air transportation and the actions that they are taking or plan to take to improve the air travel environment. The Department will also request and gather relevant information from the public and attendees on related topics, which will enable the Department to move more expeditiously on any necessary action to advance safe accommodations for air travelers with disabilities using wheelchairs.

This meeting will be held via Zoom Video Webinar. DOT is committed to providing equal access to this Zoom Meeting for all participants. Communication access real-time translation and American sign language interpretation will be provided. Please send any requests for additional disability-related accommodations to FlyingWithWheelchairs@dot.gov by March 21, 2022.

Requests to make oral comments during the meeting or to submit written materials to be reviewed during the meeting should be received at FlyingWithWheelchairs@dot.gov no later than March 21, 2022. When making advance requests for oral comments, please identify which of the four topics identified in the Federal Register Notice you wish to address. If there is an interest in addressing a different topic not mentioned in the notice but related to travel by individuals with disabilities who use wheelchairs, please identify that topic in your request. If time allows, questions or comments by those who did not make an advance request for oral comments will also be permitted.
