Air Access/New Website
Posted on February 16, 2016
PVA launched www.AirAccess30.org. The purpose of this website is to collect stories from PVA members and the disability community about their air travel experiences.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). As you know, PVA played a leading role in the passage of the ACAA. Now, we are working with the broader disability community to bring attention to the successes and failures in air travel for passengers with disabilities. The National Advocacy Program will be leading an initiative, in concert with our partners in the disability community, to reopen the ACAA and amend the law to improve the air travel experience for people with disabilities and to provide for recourse when our members and all people with disabilities have negative experiences in the course of that travel.
We are calling on all PVA members to actively engage with us in this effort. Please share this website- www.AirAccess30.org -widely to ensure all PVA members are aware and encourage them to provide us with their stories. We will be using these stories to increase advocacy around the ACAA and improve air travel for all people with disabilities.

For those of you who are actively involved in social media, please share the www.AirAccess30.org site. We are also using the hashtag #ACAA30.
