Accessibility Information and Assistance

Getting from one point to another at any airport can be challenging, especially for travelers with disabilities. The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) recognizes these needs and is working to make travel through Chicago's airports as pleasant and convenient as possible.

Purple Airplane Program

In an effort to develop awareness in the airport environment, as well as convenient and safer travel for customers with disabilities, the CDA has created the Purple Airplane Program to assist with Disability Awareness & Assistance.

Travelers with disabilities can wear a Purple Airplane Sticker to receive additional assistance from airport and security staff.
