Notice of Proposed Rulemaking – Accessible Lavatories on Single-Aisle Aircraft

The U.S. Department of Transportation is seeking comment in this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on proposed amendments to the Department’s disability regulation. This NPRM proposes specific measures for improving accessibility of lavatories on single-aisle aircraft for passengers with disabilities. These improvements include changes to the interior of the lavatory, additional services that airlines would provide with respect to lavatory access, training requirements, and improvements to the aircraft’s onboard wheelchair.
