For Service Dogs?

What do airlines require for service dogs?
Although every commercial airline company must follow a set of federal laws (Air Carrier Access Act of 1986) governing service dogs, they have flexibility in terms of how they carry things out. The fact is, each of them has a business to manage and they need to make sure operations run as smoothly as possible.

That’s why each airline has its own set of processes and rules that folks with service dogs should be aware of. Let’s face it, flying is stressful enough as it is, and no one wants an unpleasant surprise when they check in at the airport!

We’ve carefully examined all the major airline companies’ websites, reviewed every single policy that relates to flying with service dogs, and have them listed here for your convenience. We recommend that you use the information we’ve compiled to make flying with your animal stress and worry free!
