72 A P P E N D I X B Questionnaire for Community Organizations Interview Protocol for Community Organizations The Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) has recently developed guidance for airports on wayfinding, airport signage, and improving access for people with disabilities and limited English proficiency. We are on a team to compile additional practices on how airports, airlines, and others communicate travel-related information that assist users to maximize their cognitive and sensory abilities to navigate and use airport services, programs, and facilities. The final report of the project should assist airport staff in obtaining a clear understanding of existing airport and airline best practices, and provide them with tools and resources they can implement to improve passenger experiences at their own airports. Community organizations may also find the report beneficial to their members who need assistance during air travel. The interview averages 30-45 minutes and you can withdraw from the conversation whenever you want. We need to record the conversation for data analysis purposes only and the audio recording file will be deleted after the study is completed. Is it okay for us to record the conversation? May we acknowledge you and/or your airport for the time and expertise you are sharing? Specific interview questions are: Interview Questions to Community Organizations 1. What is the main function of your organization? 2. Have you collaborated with airports/airlines in order to maximize the cognitive or sensory ability of your members? If yes, what is it? 3. Needs of your members when they travel by air: Think about the journey from traveling to the airport, parking, dropoff, pickup, waiting, walking to the check-in counter and then to the gates, enplaning and deplaning, baggage claim, assistive device, ground transportation, etc. What information does a typical member of your organization need when traveling by air?
