ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Canadian Transportation Agency will entitle people allergic to household pets to air travel without sharing cabin space with pets except for service animals such as seeing-eye dogs. The agency says that pet allergies constitute as a disability under the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health of the World Health Organization. Furthermore, the agency will examine the pet policies of airlines to see if they hinder mobility and issue a ruling.
