- guide dogs – dogs that assist a person to alleviate the effects of a vision impairment
- hearing dogs – dogs that assist a person to alleviate the effects of a hearing impairment
- other assistance animals – animals that assist a person to overcome the effects of a diagnosed disability other than a vision or hearing impairment.
Upon boarding, the Assistance animal will be assessed by onboard personnel to ensure it meets standards of hygiene and behaviour that are appropriate for an animal in a public place."General accessibility features:
