Extracts from the press briefing by Antonio Tajani on the new EU rules facilitating access to air transport for people with reduced mobility

5 views

On 26 July 2008, new EU rules will enter into force that will guarantee better access to air transport for persons with reduced mobility. It will give the disabled and the elderly access to air transport comparable to that of any other passengers, without discrimination or additional cost. These new rules will give assistance in all EU airports and assistance on board without additional cost. Airports will be obliged to offer a specific package of services to persons with reduced mobility such as wheelchair transport or guide dogs for the blind. The Commission believes that the application of these measures will provide an effective response to the needs of a large and – with Europe’s demographic ageing – growing section of the population.
