Ryanair considers letting dogs in the cabin for short-haul flights
Low-cost airline Ryanair could soon be allowing pets in the cabin for short-haul European flights.
As part of Ryanair’s ‘Always Getting Better’ initiative the airline may follow Germanwing’s example and start allowing some smaller pets aboard.
Until now Ryanair has had a no pets policy, meaning its passengers must either put their furry friends into kennels or leave them with friends when traveling.
One of the airline’s chiefs has said it is thinking about letting small dogs in the cabin on short-haul flights.
The airline currently only allows guide dogs and assistant dogs on certain routes.
Chief commercial officer David O’Brien said:
“We are open to lots of suggestions. It’s one we’re looking at.
“It could be quite difficult. What makes one person happy would make another unhappy. But we’d be interested to hear what people think.
