A few weeks ago, the Disabled Travelers blog reported on an important new initiative from the U.S. Department of Transportation that will extend valuable accessibility features throughout airport terminals and on airline websites.
In that post, I mentioned that it’s critical Disabled Travelers fans participate in the federal government’s public comments on the measure, which are still ongoing.
This is so important to me that I’ve been keeping up with it, and there’s been some movement — so I’d like to take this time to inform disabled travelers and their travel companions about the progress.
Welcome one and all to the Disabled Travelers blog!
Last week we unveiled some exciting news when it became known Disabled Travelers was mentioned on no less a web destination than the travel section of The Today Show.
Today, we’re continuing our news coverage for the month with some new information and resources on travel for those with visual and hearing impairments.
We have some brand new resources, fresh off the internet and straight to your door – so let’s chat about them.

Welcome to Disabled Travelers, and here’s hoping fall has reached your home, wherever it may be!
This is Si, and I’m back with another blog post: this week, we’re delving into news from the airline industry.
This is often a mixed bag, but there’s some great changes on the horizon: an international movement is building up to make airports more accessible, airlines more responsive, and the websites for both a lot easier for disabled visitors to navigate.
This is a natural next step after the big push for a Passenger Bill of Rights!
