Delta Air Lines provide all passengers the very best service, whatever their circumstances. Accessibility is a primary concern of ours. We're always available to help passengers who need it.
Delta’s Complaint Resolution Officials (CRO) have been specially trained and are aware of applicable Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) disability regulations and are available at all airport locations. Customers can request the assistance of a CRO through our customer service personnel. Our brochure, Traveling with Disabilities, can provide more complete information about services we provide for the disabled.

For special needs requests, Delta requires a 48 hours advance notice and at least one hour advance check-in on the day of departure if the customer:
Keep in mind that security screening and pre-boarding processes are likely to require more than an hour advance check-in.
Delta may require a customer to present a medical certificate from a doctor. Please advise if a customer has any one of the following conditions:
If any of these conditions occur, obtain a medical certificate dated within ten days of the flight from a certified medical doctor as follows:
Delta accommodates any request for seating that helps manage a disability. It is our responsibility to provide customers with a disability an applicable seat assignment in advance. Additional accommodation may be made for:
To request a specific disability seat assignment, contact Delta’s Global Service Center (GSC) at 800-325-0678.
Delta welcomes service animals in the aircraft cabin, such as dogs and monkeys trained to assist passengers with mobility, visual, or hearing disabilities.
A service animal must be in the floor space where the passenger sits and may not get in the way of an aisle or any area that needs to remain clear for emergencies. (no exit row seating available.)
Some locations (Hawaii, Great Britain, etc.) have quarantine laws for animals, or restrictions for animals to enter the country. See Health Requirements for more information.
Pregnant women do not need a medical certificate to travel. However, keep in mind that ticket change fees and penalties aren't waived for pregnancy.
If a customer is traveling after her eighth month, it's a good idea to check with a doctor to be sure it will be ok to travel.
Notify Delta's Global Service Center at 800-325-0678, when a customer has a peanut allergy. Delta will create a buffer zone of three rows in front of and three rows behind the customer’s seat. We'll also advise cabin service to board additional non-peanut snacks, which will allow our flight attendants to serve these snack items to everyone within this area.
Gate agents will be notified in case the customer would like to pre-board and cleanse the immediate seating area. We'll do everything we can, but unfortunately we still can't guarantee that the flight will be completely peanut-free.
Note: Delta Connection Carriers do not accept incubators, oxygen, respirators, ventilators, or on board wheelchairs.
