Priority passenger

I have a small Westie, approximately 14 pounds, who I always take on holiday with me.

I understand that there is now an EU Directive whereby you can take a small dog on an aeroplane in the cabin. This seems to apply to all European flights except England.

I have been trying to find out why it does not apply to England but without success and I wonder whether Dogs Today can give me a reason.

  1. It is a DEFRA requirement that animals travelling by air to the UK must travel as cargo, i.e. in the hold. See Unreasonable, in my view.
