ADCP's mission is to ensure:
- Airport operators/sponsors meet their obligations with regard to regulatory requirements
- Travelers with disabilities have access to the activities, programs, and services that an airport provides to all travelers
- Increased awareness of accessible air travel for people with disabilities
What We Do
Our staff supports the following activities:
- On-site training on regulatory requirements and best practices
- Periodic compliance reviews of airports
- Development of resources for airport operators (manuals, information pamphlets, webinars, conferences)
Have a complaint about accessibility at an airport?
Please contact the airport owner/operator and/or the airport ADA/504 Coordinator first.
If your issue is not resolved, please contact the FAA Airport Disability Compliance Program. We investigate complaints from travelers with disabilities who did not have the same level of access that an airport provides to all travelers under accessibility requirements and regulations.
For complaints involving security checkpoints, please contact the Transportation Security Administration.
For complaints involving airline operators, please contact the Aviation Consumer Protection.
