The Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology welcomes your recent editorial regarding pets in airplane cabins.1 It was through the society that Air Canada made its decision in 2006 to ban the carriage of pets on board, because of the dangers to passengers with serious animal dander allergies. When Air Canada reversed this policy in July 2009, we contacted them immediately to express our concerns. We have also discussed these issues with WestJet. As the national society representing allergists and clinical immunologists throughout Canada, and with the welfare of our patients firmly in mind, we support the effort to allow pet-allergic individuals to travel by air in safety and comfort.
