WOOF! Ryanair may soon allow you to bring your DOG into the cabin…


Furry friends have previously been unable to join us on our jaunts abroad – but it seems all that may change shortly. 

Yes, Ryanair has announced that it is now considering implementing a policy that would allow passengers to bring their pups into the cabin with them. 

Although owners of larger breeds will still have to leave their hounds at home: weight restrictions mean only smaller canines would be permitted.

Chief commercial officer David O'Brien said this week: "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."

The likes of Iberia currently accepts pets in the cabin, so long as the animals weigh less than 8kg.

At the moment, cats, dogs and ferrets can be taken on board flights within the EU without the need for quarantine, but they all need to be vaccinated, microchipped and have a pet passport.
