service animals on private flights

When flying on Wildcat Touring, our top priority is the health, comfort and safety of our customers. In accordance with the final rule from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Wildcat Touring will no longer recognize emotional support animals as service animals.
Animals that previously traveled as emotional support animals and no longer qualify as service animals may travel as carry-on pets with a fee, as long as they meet the requirements.

Service animals in training, emotional support animals, and comfort animals may travel as pets, not as service animals. All requirements and applicable fees will apply.

Wildcat Touring will only accept trained service animals that are dogs. Customers traveling with a trained service dog, must complete the required DOT form available on this page.

We know how important it is to travel smoothly with your trained service dog. For questions, call 254-Wildcat (945-3228).
