Delta says no to medical assistance puppies or kittens and any emotional support animals on long flights
When flying on Delta, we welcome service and support animals in the aircraft cabin. When traveling with a service or support animal, we’re here to work with you to make sure your travel day runs smoothly.
Please be advised that our service and support animal policy is changing:
- Effective July 10, 2018: Each customer is limited to one emotional support animal. We are no longer accepting pit bull type dogs as service or support animals.
- Effective December 18, 2018: Service and support animals under four months of age are not allowed on any flight due to USDA vaccination requirements. Additionally, emotional support animals are no longer allowed to be booked on flights longer than eight hours. If you purchased your ticket prior to December 18th and have requested to travel with an emotional support animal, it will be ok to travel as originally ticketed.
- Effective February 1, 2019: Emotional support animals will not be accepted on flights longer than eight hours after regardless of booking date.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRAINED SERVICE ANIMALS AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT OR PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE ANIMALS
We know that both types of animals provide invaluable services and we welcome both on our flights. To travel with an emotional support or psychiatric service animal, passengers must upload the required documentation at least 48 hours before a flight. For questions, call 404-209-3434. Advanced notice is encouraged but not required for customers travelling with trained service animals.
