DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AE89 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Accessible Lavatories on Single-Aisle Aircraft 

This rulemaking would require that airlines make lavatories on new single-aisle aircraft large enough, equivalent to that currently found on twin-aisle aircraft, to permit a passenger with a disability (with the help of an assistant, if necessary) to approach, enter, and maneuver within the aircraft lavatory as necessary to use all lavatory facilities and leave by means of the aircraft's on-board wheelchair. This final rule will also address proposed changes to lavatory interiors and other short-term improvements that were set forth in Accessible Lavatories part I (RIN 2105-AE88).
