Parliamentary questions
16 April 2014
E-005042-14
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Cristiana Muscardini (ECR)

 Subject:  Animals in planes
 Answer(s) 

A passenger paid EUR 120 for a ticket to take his 32-kg dog with him on a trip from Linate to Lanzarote, but the airline first mislaid the dog and then sent it to Las Palmas before finally handing it back to the owner, bleeding, with multiple injuries and a broken tooth.

Can the Commission say whether it:
1. is aware of this matter?
2. knows of similar cases involving airlines in the Member States?
3. thinks that, to avoid regrettable incidents which could even result in death, a control and traceability system similar to that used for ‘ordinary’ luggage should also be used for animal transport containers?
