It should be noted that documentations should be current, meaning, not more than a year old! So if you are traveling with an ESA, a letter from medical professional is highly required, as most airlines needed it to allow a passenger’s request to travel with an ESA.
What should you do first?
Noticing the airline is your responsibility. Advance notice the airline at least 48nhours prior to the time of travel.With this, it will allow the carrier ample time to assess the traveler’s documentations. Thereby, proper and advance notification will not delay any of your time. This will ensure your ability to travel with your ESA.
How to notify?
You must call the airline with your request at least 48 hours prior to emotional support dog letter departure time and remember to provide all the necessary documents from your mental health professional upon request.In some cases, the airline might require you to fax the needed documents. Failure of advance notification to the airline can allow them to decline you to travel with your ESA.
Are trainings needed?
As I have mentioned, trainings are not needed since they are not required to do task with you. However, airlines might ask you to do so. But only simple trainings that will make your emotional support animal to properly behave in public.
If animal creates nuisance to the public such as running around an aircraft, creates loud noise, biting or jumping on people, urinating in the cabin, the airline will have to decline your request to travel with your ESA even if its necessary for the passenger’s emotional well-being.
Is there any specific breed and size needed?
That question is left to the discretion of the airline. However, based on research, most airline allow any sizes or breed, since many ESA breeds are prescribed specifically to the patient for therapeutic purposes.However, if the size of the animal is too large to fit in the cabin, airline might request and require that the emotional support animal be checked as baggage.In contrary to all breed, airlines do not allow exotic or dangerous animals! Oh my gees!
