U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) fined Scandinavian Airline System (SAS) $200,000 for failing to ensure that its website meets accessibility requirements.
DOT’s website accessibility rules require that airlines selling tickets in the United States have their websites accessible to people with disabilities.
You can access the DOT’s SAS order here that you can find in the PDF form below:
SAS needs to pay half of this fine ($100K) and the rest if DOT finds them violating the same rule again within a year.
It is important that the airlines have websites that are accessible for people with disabilities. Glad that DOT keeps an eye that airlines such as SAS are in compliance and fines if not.
