Sevenair Airlines Assistance & Service Dogs & Emotional Support Animals (ESAs)
If you’re travelling with a trained and registered Assistance or Service Dog, they can fly with you free of charge in the cabin on your Sevenair Airlines flight. It’s advisable to book in advance as Sevenair Airlines may need to limit the number of dogs that they can permit in the cabin.
As Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) are not trained to perform a specific task for their owner, they can’t fly under the Sevenair Airlines Assistance & Service Dog policy. ESAs must travel under the standard pet policy.
