Mobility and Wheelchair Assistance

- For safety reasons, Transport Canada regulates the number of specific levels of wheelchair services provided on our aircraft.
- For this reason, we require you to contact our Reservations line at 1-800-667-9356 a minimum of 48 hours prior to departure so that our customer service attendants and inflight crew can be prepared for the arrival of passengers requiring wheelchair/mobility assistance.
- Each passenger is permitted to bring, in addition to their free baggage allowance, one wheelchair that is transported in the baggage compartment of the aircraft. Braces, crutches, walkers, canes, and other assistance devices will also be accepted and are free of charge.
- 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.
