The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) fined Scandinavian Airline System (SAS) $200,000 for violating federal law and the Department’s rule protecting air travelers with disabilities, and ordered it to cease and desist from future similar violations.
The Department’s website accessibility requirements were implemented in two phases, with the second phase requiring airlines to ensure that all webpages on their primary websites were accessible by December 12, 2016. SAS no longer has an alternative separate website designed for individuals with disabilities and SAS’s primary website is accessible. ■
