Airline Requirements for Service Dogs

Traveling with a Service Dog

eginning 1-11-21 U.S. based carriers will only accept Service Dogs and Psychiatric Service Dogs for free travel. Emotional Support Dogs are welcome on all U.S. carrier flights but you will need to pay pet fees. There are no additional charges for service dogs traveling in the cabin. To travel with your psychiatric service dog or service dog, you’ll need to contact Reservations at least 48 hours before your flight and submit the required documentation, we recommend two weeks or when purchasing ticket. Airlines will require the following forms from DOT to be submitted;

  • Animal must fit on your lap, at your feet or under your seat
  • Animals must be clean, well behaved and under your control at all times

Seating options

  • For security reasons, service animals can’t block any aisle
  • You can’t sit in an exit row when traveling with service animals
  • We find it best to purchase flights that are not booked to heavily for best accomadations for your service animal

Requirements

To show that an animal is a service animal, you must provide  the following:

  • Animal ID card
  • Harness or tags
  • Credible verbal assurance

Psychiatric service dogs;

To travel with an psychiatric service dog in the cabin you must provide supporting documentation dated within 1 year of your scheduled flight.

  • That you have a mental or emotional disability recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fourth Edition (DSM IV)
  • That you need the psychiatric service dog as an accommodation for air travel and/or for activity at your destination

If we’re unable to validate your documentation or if you didn’t notify us at least 48 hours before your flight, the animal may need to be checked and travel in a kennel. Click here for Quarantine information flying to Hawaii.

I highly recommend dr. Robin to write an emotional support letter. She’s fast and understanding. Her paper is so beautiful 😻. I got one in the mail and one electronically.
