RESUMO:

The present study aims to analyze the accessibility to information on e-commerce in commercial aviation from the W3C perspective. The approach methodology is quantitative, descriptive and exploratory. The empirical field consists of secondary and primary data, based on documentary (sample) research, focusing on standards and guidelines for accessibility to information in the airline industry. As for e-commerce websites, one hundred and thirteen airlines were delimited, with sixty-one companies participating in global alliances: Star Alliance, One World and Sky Team. The metrics were analyzed through Access Monitor, which is based on the WCAG 2.0 - World Wide Web Consortium International [W3C]. Compliance requirements are found at priority levels A (basic level), AA (medium level) and AAA (high level) in individual webpages, and in some cases, in webpage sets. Afterwards, the clusters analysis used the quantitative method of hierarchical classification based on the Euclidean Distance - shorter distance, which aims to group the cases by similarities and dissimilarities, seeking homogeneity. The methodology used was spatial temporal, with transversal cut. The retrospective phase of the study in the Brazilian context occurred between 2015 and 2016. The prospective phase covered seventy-one countries in five continents, and occurred between January and June 2018, and between December 2018 and February 2019. As a result, one hundred and two airlines failed the W3C Consortium accessibility standards. Only Asiana Airlines, a Star Alliance member, and Azores Airlines, outside global alliances, passed. Clusters’ analysis concluded different degrees of inaccessibility in the air sector, configured with scarce points of positive convergence for the consumer. Among the analyzable error patterns, some dispersions appear to be larger. On the other hand, another pattern of homogeneous and simultaneous error was revealed, increasing the degree of inaccessibility to the AAA level.This attributed to the variance of these errors and other unanalyzable typologies aggravates the degree of inaccessibility, nullifying the positive aspects of the announced convergence. The error pattern shows that the homogeneity at the micro level of the alliances occurs at the AAA level, and that the companies are also interconnected by the inverse process of dispersion against the significant variance of these errors at level A, thus, forming the heterogeneity of the groups. The practical implications of this work reflect in the right to choose between tariff possibilities, e-ticket purchase and web check-in and check-in. Thus, it is verified that as the accessibility to information is limited, the right of choice of the consumer is also limited.
