As May moves toward June, the summer air travel season is heating up right alongside the weather. And with air travel poised for takeoff, DOT wants to make sure that you and your family get a fair shake when you take to the skies.
Need information on choosing between nearby airports? We can help. Connecting flights vs. nonstops? We've got that, too. The FAQs are organized to prepare you through every step: before you travel, at the airport, at your destination, and after you return.
And, should something go wrong, we've can help with Coping With Flight Delays from our "Plane Talk" series and a section of FAQs on how to deal with delayed or lost baggage. We also offer an easy online tool to submit a complaint, comment, or question.
If it's deep preparation you seek, our "Fly Rights" is the source for you. "Fly Rights" is our comprehensive Consumer Guide To Air Travel.
Best of all, DOT's Air Travel Tips is available online, so you can pack the entire staff of our Aviation Consumer Protection office in your suitcase and still have room for your swimsuit, sandals, and sunscreen.
