Aena, Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea, Spanish Airports and Air Navigation, a public business entity attached to the Ministry of Public Works, offers its users a practical communication channel, accessible to all, which seeks to eliminate barriers, improving the presence of its website on the internet by following the criteria of maximum simplicity, scope and efficiency, thus enabling it to disseminate the information and services offered to anyone who wishes to consult them.
This action is in line with the directives in the European Council's Resolution of 25 March 2002, on the E-Europe 2002 Action Plan, "Accessibility to public websites and their content", complies with the provisions of the Information Society and e-Commerce Services Act, dated 11 July 2002, and follows the guidelines in the "Guide for editing and publishing Spanish General Administration web pages".
In this sense, the contents of Aena's website have been validated with the Double-A certification, in accordance with the recommendations of the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative), an international working group that belongs to the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), which works to ensure that no group suffers from any type of discrimination that could lead to social fractures in the virtual world.
Thus, the techniques used on Aena's site fulfil the WAI's indications, as regards both the XHTML marking and the CSS.
Two external organisations, the ONCE Foundation and King-eClient, have audited the website and certified AA-level compliance, in accordance with the W3C's WAI guidelines. To achieve this objective of facilitating access to all people, we have received the help of two external organisations, responsible for certifying compliance with the W3C WAI guidelines at the Double-A Validation level.
Technosite, part of the ONCE Foundation, certifies that:
On 18/07/2007, AENA's website was audited at http://www.aena.es
The audit results satisfy the Double-A Level accessibility requirements of the W3C-WAI accessibility directives for web content, version 1.0, with the following exceptions:
Cartography, Statistics, Weather (English version) and Airport shops.
Furthermore, a great number of the documents in PDF format on the AENA website that are prior to the date of this certification do not fulfil the basic accessibility requirements.
With the issue of this certificate, AENA is committed to offering the documents in a way that is accessible to any users who so request.
King-eClient, using the King-eAccess methodology, has certified the website www.aena.es as accessible at the AA level according to the WAI guidelines.
This point entails compliance with all Priority 2 Guidelines, enabling access and browsing by any user through the site.
The collaboration between King-eClient and Aena is part of the construction process of a web for all. In it, global access has been created to the site, without barriers for anyone, standardising the same contents for all users.
To issue this certificate, King-eClient has analysed the pages of www.aena.es during their creation, proposing the necessary corrections to the incidents detected regarding access to the website by all users. Once the barriers were corrected, accessibility to the website was certified on 5 September 2007.
To facilitate navigation on its website, Aena has used access keys, which make it possible to follow some links without having to use the mouse, using the keys indicated based on the browser used.
And reference number of the shortcut to the content indicated below.
