Recently, Delta has begun requiring more documentation when flying with your ESA due to the health and safety of other passengers.
But before you start to worry what this might mean for you and your Emotional Support Animal, hear our take on the matter!
Hint: it’s good news!
Delta Airlines ESA Traveling Update
While still providing an ESA letter, Emotional Support Animal owners will now need to have a Veterinary Health Form alongside a copy of their animal’s current shot record and a signed testament to their pet’s behavior in order to take their pal onboard with them.
At first, this sounds a bit scary for ESA owners, but we believe Delta Airlines is taking a step in the right direction.
We at CertaPet are pleased that Delta has begun to further legitimize and protect Emotional Support Animals, and we stand by their decision because we know of the serious concerns travelers have when flying.
Whether it’s individuals taking advantage of the system or animals being unsafe on aircrafts, we agree with Delta that none of this is acceptable; and furthermore, CertaPet recognizes that this takes away from the people who actually benefit mentally and emotionally from this law.
Delta is Just the Beginning!
Although Delta is the first to require this, we do believe that this will become a standard for other airlines as well and wanted our customers to be aware of this change so that no travel plans in the future are disrupted.
In the end, this is a great step to legitimizing the process of traveling with your Emotional Support Animal, and we thank you for trusting in us and appreciate your continued support.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns as we are more than happy to help you navigate this new system.
