Disability & Travel Only until very recently traveling was a big problem for people with disabilities especially when it came to flying. Fortunately now new rules and regulations have been put into practice governing the rights of the disabled, the aim of these rights has been put there to minimise as much as possible many of the problems disabled people come across when traveling by air. This is made possible by providing adequate training for all staff who work within the aviation industry and bringing their attention to the needs and assistance the disabled traveler might have.
