DSC_5025Delta Air Lines announced significant changes in its policy for service and support animals.

The carrier is placing an outright ban on all service and support animals under the age of four months, effectively banning puppies and kittens, and is also banning emotional support animals on flights with a duration of eight hours or longer.

The Atlanta-based airline began tightening restrictions on service and support animals in January of this year and placed further restrictions on their transport in June.

The new restrictions comply with all legal requirements, Delta said.

“The updated support and service animal age requirement aligns with the vaccination policy of the CDC, and the eight-hour flight limit for emotional support animals is consistent with the principles outlined in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Air Carrier Access Act.”
