Allegiant Air service animal policy is to welcome service and emotional support animals on all their flights. These animals accompany individuals with disabilities and may fly at no additional charge. Whether you’re flying with Allegiant or another carrier, Dogs on Planes encourages all travelers with any kind of service animal to be familiar with their rights and responsibilities.
Within the parameters of the rules and regulations set forth by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Allegiant Air has its own set of service animal policies as set forth by Section 48 in its Contract of Carriage. Here are the essential details you need to know.
Allegiant Air Service Animal Policy
When flying with a service animal, please present identification cards, tags, or other written documentation as evidence of the dog’s occupation. The dog should also have a harness, and the passenger should be able to provide credible verbal assurance.
Allegiant allows those traveling with service animals to sit in the bulkhead seat or other seating—it is up to the passenger’s preference. If the animal obstructs an aisle, you may be asked to move. Service animals may not occupy a seat. The service animal may only travel with his owner/the person needing assistance. Service animals in training are also accepted by Allegiant for transport.
Emotional support animals are no longer permitted to travel as service animals with Allegiant Air.
