China Airlines selects SkaiBlu for web accessibility testing
SkaiBlu has been selected by China Airlines from Taiwan to complete accessibility testing for china-airlines.com in the US. This is part of China Airlines’ drive to provide equal access to its website for online bookings and self-servicing for all travelers including web users with disabilities. Equal website access is rooted in US DOT rules and the agency’s continuation implementation of the Air Carrier Access Act of 1986. According to the UN, there are worldwide over 650 million people with disabilities. Together with their families, this means that approximately two billion people are directly affected by disability. This issue is expected to become more prominent with ageing societies in key travel markets.
