Accessible Lavatories on Single-Aisle Aircraft: Part 2; (11 page(s), in English)

Notice of proposed rulemaking - The U.S. Department of Transportation (Department or DOT) proposes in this notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to require airlines to ensure that at least one lavatory on new single-aisle aircraft with 125 or more passenger seats is large enough to permit a passenger with a disability (with the help of an assistant, if necessary) to approach, enter, and manoeuvre within the aircraft lavatory, as necessary, to use all lavatory facilities and leave by means of the aircraft's on-board wheelchair.
