AIR CARRIERS ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING THE TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS OF EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS

Are you up to date and prepared for these new requirements?


 

 Airlines are constantly updating their requirements and policies for traveling with your Emotional Support Animal. Free My Paws stays ahead of these requirements and is committed to facilitating a hassle-free experience to assist you to exercise your legal rights to fly with your Emotional Support Animal. *Our Air Carrier Access Act and Department of Transportation (DOT) compliantTherapist Letter packet has been updated to include all the most recent forms and requirements for each individual airline. We will continue to monitor these changes closely and update our site and Therapist Letter packet as necessary to remain compliant and ensure you have no issues flying with your Emotional Support Animal. All our therapists at Free My Paws have current and valid legal medical licenses that can be verified by any airline upon request. Our Therapist Letter includes all the legal requirements and verbiage to meet the necessary criteria of the DOT and Air Carrier Access Act.

Our compliant Therapist Letter alone works, and continues to be updated to ensure it keeps working, for most airlines on all domestic flights and flights originating from or arriving to the U.S. ** Currently only United, Delta and American Airlines have additional forms required for travel with an Emotional Support Animal. The newly required Medical/Mental Health forms for each airline are already completed by your therapist and included in your Therapist Letter packet. The other additional forms are attached to your letter packet and need to be completed by a licensed veterinary professional and yourself. If you already have a current Free My Paws Therapist and need updated United, Delta or American Airlines forms please contact us directly at [email protected] to obtain your updated documents.
