Chinese Airlines Complying with Website Accessibility Standards

From tnooz - "Chinese airlines aim to improve their international websites and apps"

What You Need to Know

  • Chinese Airlines are looking to move internationally.
  • In this effort, they are making their websites accessible to people with disabilities in order to comply with more progressive accessibility laws.
    • The United States Department of Transportation's mandates outlined in the Air Carrier Access Act require airline websites to be accessible.

Through the Air Carrier Access Act, the United States Department of Transportation helps ensure that all individuals flying have equal access, including web content. As Chinese Airlines are looking to move globally, they are creating foreign websites and apps that are accessible to people with disabilities in order to comply with local accessibility law, which must be adhered to in order to provide their services in counties such as the United States. Through this internationalization effort, more and more airline companies are updating their websites to conform with internationally accepted standards, including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, which helps ensure equal access for users reviewing their airline and flight information.
