Mobility and Wheelchair Assistance

Allergies

  • Rise Air does permit domestic household pets to be transported on our aircraft. Although we do our best to minimize allergens by keeping animals contained throughout the flight, our aircraft is a public space and cannot guarantee it is an allergen free environment.

  • Transport Canada mandates that infants are not permitted in the emergency exit row and that no person shall be responsible for more than one infant (any child under two years of age) on board.
