Airlines and Service Dogs

The bottom line is, it's a breeze for you to fly the friendly skies with your service dog! If you have your dogs in a row, that is. By that we mean you'll just need a few things to enjoy smooth sailing, based on the Air Carrier Access Act and recommendations of USA-based airline companies.

The Air Carrier Access Act requires airline companies to allow for physically/emotionally impaired persons to be accompanied in the cabin of the aircraft with a service dog or emotional support animal and not be charged a fee.

We have a few important links on this page that will point you to everything you might possibly need to know to make flying with your service dog easy and stress-free, no matter your destination! Don't miss them!
