In December of 2015, The Department of Transportation enacted an amendment to the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) requiring all foreign and domestic air carriers operating in the United States to make their website, apps and kiosks compliant with WCAG 2.0 standards (AA). The compliance schedule for the amendment had two phases. Phase 1 required all core functions of your site to be compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA by June 30th 2016. Phase 2 required all remaining pages to be compliant by December of 2016.
If you're an air carrier operating in the US and have not completed Phase 1 or 2 compliance, we can provide our accessibility services to help you quickly achieve compliance.
Usablenet has over 16 years' experience in providing accessibility services to leading air carriers. Today, we support 20+ global air carriers including JetBlue, SAS, Finnair, American Airlines and Air Europa in meeting the DOT mandate for WCAG 2.0 compliance (AA) and in delivering a compelling user experience.
