By FOX News // January 26, 2021
(FOX) – Southwest Airlines will ban emotional support animals from all flights effective March 1, in accordance with a new final rule issued by the Department of Transportation in December.
According to Southwest senior vice president of operations and hospitality Steve Goldberg, the move will allow the airline to “address numerous concerns raised by the public and airline employees regarding the transport of untrained animals in the cabins of aircraft.”
Southwest customers may still travel with their cat or dog as part of the airline’s existing pets program for a charge of $95 each way per pet carrier. However, the animals must meet all applicable requirements regarding in-cabin stowage.
