More American adults with disabilities than ever are now flying, but far fewer encounter barriers at airports and with airlines. According to the ODO 2015 Study, 31% of American adults with disabilities flew over the past two years, taking 23 million trips by air. Since the previous study in 2005, reports of major obstacles have dropped by 21% for airports and 14% for airlines. These are a few of the new statistics on air travel that Eric Lipp, ODO executive director, will be sharing at the 2015 ACI Latin America-Caribbean/World Annual General Assembly, set for August 31-September 2 in Panama City, Panama. The full 2015 ODO Study is available for sale on the ODO website.
