Air transport: new rights for people with reduced mobility - video

This short video (less than 5 minutes) was made by the European Commission for people with reduced mobility. It runs through a new European regulation that guarantees more rights for both the disabled and people with reduced mobility when they travel by air.

Nearly one in five Europeans can require assistance for traveling or communicating. Since 26 July 2008, these people have the right to assistance and certain services in all European Union airports, as well as on board aircraft operating throughout European territory.
