On Demand Webinar: Exploring Accessibility: Mobility Aids Handling

The safe and dignified travel of persons with disabilities traveling with their own mobility aids is an important topic to be addressed and a key area of action.
The industry’s goal is to work together with the disability community to improve communication, reduce damage of mobility aids and improve training for the safe loading and securing of mobility aids in the cargo compartment of the aircraft.
Watch this webinar recording to:
  • Receive guidance on how to improve the safe transportation of manual and battery powered mobility aids in the cargo compartment of the aircraft and reduce risk of damage and breakage.  
  • Receive practical tools for better communication between the user, airports, and airlines to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. 
  • Understand how training supported by job aids can help airports, ground handlers and airline operators to correctly load and secure mobility aids.


How to stay up to date with the latest information provided in the webinar?


The AHM contains all the industry-approved policies and standards to support safe and efficient ground operations above and below the wing. The Latest AHM Manual is now available featuring the most up to date guidance.

IATA advocates for standardization to enhance the level of training across industries and reduce training time and costs which means safer, more efficient, and more cost-effective ground operation practices. Learn more about IATA Ground Operations Manuals.
