New guidelines for animal welfare announced by Alaska Airlines.
At Alaska Airlines we have a new guideline for travellers who travel with psychological assistance and service cows. Thursday, the carrier said all those travelling with emotive assistance and psychological service pets must supply documentation indicating their behavioural skills and medicinal need. Amendments to the Directive are similar to those made by Delta and United Airlines in recent years.
At Alaska Airlines we have introduced a new guideline for travellers who travel with psychological assistance and service cows. Thursday the carrier said that all emotive assistance travellers and service pets must supply documentation stating that the pet can conduct itself in private and that it can be seated in the passenger's cabin, as well as a written statement issued by a qualified healthcare or psychiatry specialist confirming that the healthcare specialist is providing the traveller with treatment for a certificated psychological impairment at least 48 hrs prior to a trip.
These new policies apply to ticket purchases made on or after May 1. According to the carrier, it has experienced a significant rise in the number of psychological assistance and psychological service pets travelling on its flight and a corresponding rise in animal related incident rates. "The majority of pets do not cause problems," said Ray Prentice, Alaska Airlines Country Manager of Consumer Advocacy, in a news bulletin.
"In recent years, however, we have seen a constant rise in the incidence of livestock not sufficiently educated to conduct themselves in a bustling aerodrome environment or in an aircraft, which has led us to reinforce our policies. Here you can find the new documentation on psychiatry and emotionals.
Emotive assistance beasts have become a challenging issue for airlines as they have been confronted with situations where Emotive Assistance beasts have damaged airline customers, and with situations where airline customers have attempted to get Emotive Assistance beasts on board unconventionally scheduled aircraft. Alaska Airlines and Delta have also adopted new guidelines for emotionally supportive pets similar to those of Alaska Airlines that require red tape that confirms the behavioural skill and medicinal need of an emotionally supportive beast.
