Trained service animals
Trained service animals are animals that receive specific training to perform life functions for individuals with disabilities. Examples include animals that assist with visual impairments, deafness, seizures and mobility limitations.
Trained service animals are accepted for qualified individuals with a disability. A service animal should sit in the floor space in front of the customer’s assigned seat but cannot protrude into the aisles. Customers may use an approved air travel in-cabin kennel for smaller animals provided its use meets stowage requirements.
Emotional support and psychiatric assist animals
Emotional support animals are animals that provide emotional, psychiatric or cognitive support for individuals with disabilities, but may or may not have training with respect to the disability.
Emotional support and psychiatric assist animals are also accepted for qualified individuals with a disability if certain documentation requirements are met. Customers must provide 48 hours’ notice to an agent and a letter from a licensed medical/mental health professional. Customers will need to also provide a veterinary health form documenting the health and vaccination records for the animal as well as confirming that the animal has appropriate behavioral training.
An animal should sit at the customer’s feet without protruding into the aisles to comply with safety regulations. Customers may elect to use an approved air travel in-cabin kennel for smaller animals.

Trainers transporting service animals in the ordinary course of business or service animals who are not in training, standard pet-related regulations and restrictions will apply.
