DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AC97 Publication ID: Spring 2008 
Title: +Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel 
Abstract: This final rule would consolidate three notices of proposed rulemaking (NPRMs) to update and expand coverage under the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). The ACAA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in air travel. The final rule would amend the ACAA rules to apply to foreign air carriers. It would also add new provisions concerning passengers who use electronic respiratory assistive devices (including portable oxygen concentrators) and passengers who are deaf or hard of hearing. In addition, the rule would reorganize and update the entire ACAA rule. Rulemaking actions under RINs 2105-AC29 and 2105-AD41 are being incorporated into this rulemaking.
