FAQs and Answers About Flying with Your Service Animal

If you’ve never flown with your service animal before, you may be wondering whether you will encounter any problems along the way. Knowing as much as possible about what to expect will help to ensure that your upcoming trip runs as smoothly as possible. Here are some frequently asked questions about traveling with service animals—along with the answers.

Will I need to explain why I need my service animal? You should be ready to explain, as clearly and as quickly as possible, what your service animal is for. Make sure to alert airline personnel to your service animal’s presence when you check in at the airport. If your animal is registered as a service animal, you do not have to pay a fee to fly with it.

Do I need to bring proof that I need a service animal? If you have a working service dog, you can explain verbally why you need to have a service animal. If you have an emotional support animal, you’ll need a letter from a licensed mental health professional such as a psychologist or a social worker. Depending on the airline, the medical practitioner who wrote your letter may have to fill out a form.

Do I need to bring anything else? You should have a photo ID for your service animal, which you can obtain from the National Service Animal Registry. Your animal should also be wearing a solid-colored red or green vest to identify it as a service animal.

How do I take my service animal through security? You can carry your service animal through the security checkpoint. You’ll need to remove anything made of metal—such as your dog’s leash or tags—before walking through the scanner, however.

Where should my service animal sit during the flight? Your service animal should sit on the floor directly in front of you during the flight. If your service animal is small, it may be permitted to sit on your lap.
