Paralyzed Veterans of America helps ease travel difficulties for travelers with disabilities

Paralyzed Veterans of America has announced it is helping Americans with a mobility disability navigate difficulties with holiday flight travel, the organization said.

The organization encourages air travelers with disabilities to plan ahead to avoid injuries, damaged wheelchairs and other common problems. Air travel issues are the number one complaint Paralyzed Veterans of America hears from its members.

The organization also recommends that travelers with disabilities attach written instructions to wheelchairs and scooters so airline personnel can stow them safely.

Paralyzed Veterans of America has been a vocal advocate for accessible air travel. Recently, the organization helped with passage of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2018 (H.R. 302).

Paralyzed Veterans of America is challenging the Department of Transportation delay in providing accessible restrooms on more flights.

Paralyzed Veterans of America is a Congressionally chartered veterans service organization formed to benefit and represent veterans with spinal cord injury or disease.
