Delta’s New Regulations, Bans “Pit Bull Type” Dogs and More

Reading Time: 1 minute

Delta's New Regulations, Bans Pit Bull Type Dogs and MoreAnnounced yesterday, Delta released new regulations on breed restrictions and limitations for an ESA owner. Going into full effect on July 10th, Delta Airlines bans any “pit bull type” dog, service/emotional support animal or not, from onboarding the plane. Additionally, they will only be allowing one ESA per customer on the flight as well.

As either a frequent flyer or CertaPet customer, what does this mean for an ESA owner looking to fly with Delta?

Delta’s New Policy: Bans “Pit Bull Type” Dogs and Regulates One ESA Per Person

As one of the first airlines to update its ESA policy back in March, Delta has sparked a change that more and more airlines are copying: the legitimatization of Emotional Support Animals. With the additional documentation, true ESA owners, ones with an emotional and/or mental disability, are able to distinguish themselves from those who are just looking for a cheap way to fly with their pet.

But no matter the case, Delta Airlines updates their pet policy once again with their employees, passengers, and pets all in mind; and now clients will no longer be able to fly with their “pit bull type” dogs due to safety and security concerns.

Delta also announced that they will only honor one ESA per customer.

Although we at CertaPet understand that the effectiveness of your ESA is not limited to a particular breed of dog, we must adhere to the new policies put into place and want to make you aware of the new regulations as soon as possible so that you can make arrangements for future travels.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns as we are more than happy to help you with this new change.

    Delta informed me that the ESA letter from my mental health provider is no longer sufficient. I now need a letter certifying that my ESA is trained to provide me emotional support and will not disturb other passengers. This policy makes Certapet’s service useless because you only provide one of two letters that are now required.
