Article nameCan guide dogs travel together with the passenger?

Yes. If you have a visual, physical or hearing disability, problems with balance, diabetes, or epilepsy, you can travel with your guide dog in the cabin of the airplane on our LATAM routes. 

However, please note that we are subject to the health restrictions of some countries of destination or connection such as the Galapagos Islands, where the transport of animals is not permitted in the cabin or the hold of the airplane. In these cases, we can offer you to transport your guide dog by LATAM Cargo.

Please take note of the following requirements: 

  • You must wear your official badge or some document that certifies that it is an assistance animal or is being trained for such purpose.
  • The dog can travel at your feet or under the cabin seat without obstructing the aisles and will not be permitted in seats located by the emergency exits.
  • It must wear a leash or harness, be clean, healthy and know how to behave itself.

Effective July 14, 2021, there is a temporary suspension which prohibits the entry of dogs into the United States arriving from high-risk for dog rabies countries listed by the CDC, check more information in our Pet Transportation sites.
