ACC Planning Airports for Travelers with Disabilities and an Aging Population On-Demand Webinar
More than ever before, society has embraced the fact that travel is for everyone. An increase in mobility options for individuals with disabilities has created a larger customer base for tourism and revenue. Additionally, airports need to retain access for the current traveling public. According to several research consortiums, approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers reach retirement age every day. This generation will include people who develop cognitive and physical disabilities and continue to seek air travel. Airports, airlines, and the cities they connect are realizing these trends.
Although accessibility is required by The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), this regulation comes with the challenge of imparting new concepts upon legacy infrastructure and policies.
This ACC on-demand webinar will guide participants through requirements and opportunities in accessible design. Participants will be introduced to the regulations that govern accessible design, including the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Bill that included an Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights. Participants will understand the diversity of cognitive and physical disabilities that can be considered in the design and operation of facilities. Participants will become familiar with technology that is currently used to improve special needs travelers’ navigation within airports. Ultimately, participants will understand an approach to infrastructure and policy called universal design, which moves accessibility from the owner’s punch list to the designers’ foundational creativity.
At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
• Summarize regulations that govern accessible requirements and locate FAA or ACRP resources that help interpret the requirements.
• Highlight technology and practices to help individuals with disabilities navigate airports.
• Explain the benefits of universal design to tourism and transportation companies.
• Apply the concept of universal design as a collaborative tool during planning and design.
