EDF Call for Action

The European Disability Forum call for the EU’s revision of its passenger rights’ legislation to end the repeated violations of the rights of travellers with disabilities, especially during air travel.

The report “End the nightmare: Passengers with disabilities deserve to travel by air” was released on Wednesday 19th April, to support calls for stronger legal protections for persons with disabilities when flying. Whilst this report covers all persons with disabilities, not just those travelling with guide and assistance dogs, it does include them and EDF have asked for more examples of access refusals by Airlines.

The more of these they have to show the problems we all suffer - the more power they will have to improve things.

Could you please report any access refusals directly to EDF on their Accessibility Discrimination Database.
