Last Announcement: To Travel In Aircraft Cabin, Shih Tzu Must Prove Well Behavior

According to the airline, these measures were taken so that everyone’s safety during flights is even greater.

The airline Delta Airlines reported that from March 1, some rules will change so that some animals can fly in the cabin of their aircraft with guardians.

In an announcement made last Friday, January 19th, the company will demand from the tutors, in addition to all the documentation that is currently required, some extra guarantees that the animal is able to behave inside the aircraft cabin during the entire flight time.

Among these requirements are proof of health or vaccination at least 48 hours before the flight.

According to the airline, these measures were taken so that everyone’s safety during flights is even greater.

The reason that led Delta to take these measures was the increase in the number of complaints of animals that, in addition to urinating and defecating on the plane, bite other passengers, as in the case that happened in June last year, where a passenger was bitten several times. times in the face of someone else’s dog and had to go to the hospital.

These requirements apply mainly to service animals, which travel outside the cages, such as guide dogs, which help people with some type of limitation, and emotional support animals, which are often untrained. In these cases, tutors must sign a declaration stating that the animal knows how to behave.

For animals that travel in cages, nothing changes.

According to John Laughter, Delta’s senior vice president of safety, the company is seeking a balance between “the legitimate need for passengers to have these animals” and safety during flights.
