Spirit Airlines ESA Requirements

Spirit Airlines ESAs don't need any specific training; however, they should still be able to follow basic behavioral commands and be able to meet these standards:

  1. The animal must always remain with you, no unattended ESAs.
  2. The animal may not jump on other guests or hamper another passenger's personal space.
  3. The animal may not relieve itself on-board the aircraft or in the airport besides in designated areas.
  4. The ESA may not emit strong odors. No stinky pets, please.
  5. The animal may only sit on the floor by the feet of its handler or in the handler's lap.

Spirit Airlines and federal law doesn't require an individual to identify your emotional support animal; however, it's our experience from client testimony that there are many benefits to identifying your animal while at the airport. Check out our ESA Registration Kits or our ESA dog vests and emotional support dog and/or animal leashes that help keep your animal close by in the busy airports.
