Flying With Disability

Flying with guide dogs
Flying with guide dogs, sometimes referred to as service dogs, will always be subject to quarantine laws, and will only be permitted to fly following clearance. This will involve obtaining the correct veterinary certification prior to flying.

An airline is not permitted to deny access of guide dog, if the animal has all the appropriate identification. Always check with your airline in advance to see what documentation is required.

For the duration of the flight, guide dogs must observe a number of safety regulations, for example, they must not obstruct aisles, as this is deemed a hazard in an emergency situation.

Once your guide dog has been cleared for travel, flying with your dog should be at no additional expense, and is not considered in the same category as flying with pets.
