Parliamentary questions
16 January 2013
E-010362/2012
Answer given by Mr Borg on behalf of the Commission

According to the information made available to the public by the Irish competent authorities(1), any ferry company and the majority of airlines operating routes into Ireland from other Member States and certain non-EU European countries are approved to carry pet animals under the Irish transport approval system. This is in line with EU legislation. However, the Commission cannot comment on the decision made by those transport companies to operate direct flights to Dublin, for passengers travelling with or without pets.
