Traveling with Animals
 
We transport dogs, cats and household birds, but there are conditions and restrictions that apply whether you are traveling with your pet, trained service animal, or emotional/comfort/psychiatric support animal. We advise you to read and understand the conditions and restrictions thoroughly prior to traveling with an animal.

Traveling with Service Animals


We welcome guests and their trained service animals aboard our aircraft. Trained service animals are different from emotional/comfort/psychiatric support animals in that they have been trained to perform a particular function, service or task to assist a guest with a disability in the management of their disability.

For more information and requirements regarding traveling with service animals, please view our Service Animal Help Page.

For more information and requirements regarding traveling with an emotional/psychiatric support animal, please view our Emotional/Comfort/Psychiatric Support Animals Help Page.


Traveling with Emotional/Comfort/Psychiatric Support Animals


Emotional support and psychiatric service animals are animals that provide comfort, affection and companionship to aid in emotional and/or psychiatric therapy. These animals are not Trained Service Animals, as they are not trained to perform a task and/or function to assist a guest with a psychological disability.

For more information and requirements regarding travel with Emotional Support/Psychiatric Support Animals, please view our Emotional/Comfort/Psychiatric Support Animals Help Page.
