Travelling with Service Animals

  • Rise Air will permit a service animal on board without charge if the animal is:
    • Required for assistance and certified, in writing by a professional service animal institution, as having been trained to assist a person with a disability.
    • The animal must remain harnessed and under the passenger's control but does not need to be muzzled. If the animal is too large for the space under a seat, it may remain on the floor at the passenger's feet.
    • Passengers with service animals may not occupy seats where the animal impedes or obstructs access to an emergency exit or interferes with the crew's ability to respond to an emergency.

Mobility and Wheelchair Assistance


  • 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.
  • Please call our Reservations line at 1-800-667-9356 when you confirm your reservation. We will make every reasonable effort to arrange a seat as far from the animal as possible.
  • Rise Air does not serve any nut products in their inflight service. However, despite our best efforts, other passengers may bring aboard food items that contain nut products or residue.

Traveling with Infants

  • Seat selection is not required for infants who are held on a lap of an adult.
  • An infant must be held during taxi, take-off, and landing and whenever the seat belt sign is on.
  • Lap held infants must be held facing the adult’s chest or secured in an approved car seat for the duration of the flight.
  • 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.
  • Two lap held infants will not be seated in the same row due to the number of oxygen masks in each row.

Travelling with Children Aged Two and Older

  • Rise Air requires that a full fare be purchased for children over 2 years of age to have a purchased seat and they must be accompanied by an adult older than 16 years of age.
  • Young adults aged 12-16 are permitted to travel on their own or use our accompanied minor service.
  • At check-in, Rise Air will try to assign a seat that is close to their parent or guardian for children under the age of 14.
  • If close seating is not available, seats will be assigned at check-in and volunteers will be requested at the time of board to change seats prior to take off with no additional charge.
  • We will attempt to assign seats:
    • Next to their parent or guardian for children aged 5 and under.
    • In the same row as their parent or guardian for children aged 6 to 11.
    • In a row that is separated by no more than a row from their parent or guardian for children 12-13.
