Guidance on transport of portable dialysis machines by air travelers with disabilities

About this Notice

The Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) prohibits U.S. and foreign air carriers from discriminating against an individual in air transportation on the basis of his/her disability. Beginning in 1990, the Department of Transportation issued a number of rules implementing the ACAA. These rules, which are contained in 14 CFR Part 382 (Part 382), define the responsibilities of airlines and the rights of passengers with disabilities under the ACAA including people who use portable dialysis machines at home (i.e., they are on home dialysis).
