In Europe, they want to be allowed to take horses to the cabin | Wikipet.ru
Following the United States, the practice of air travel with pets in the cabin can spread to the EU. After the adoption of a law in America that allowed people to take the so-called “animals of emotional support” with them to the salon, many Americans began to fly in the arms with their pets. Among those who were on board next to the owner were not only cats, dogs and rodents, but even turkeys and miniature horses. In just one year, the number of applications for flights with animals grew by 75% at United Airlines alone. In total, customers of this company flew somewhere with their pets 76,000 times for 12 months.
In fairness, it is worth recognizing that increased demand has forced the company to independently regulate the access of animals on board. So, after trying to take a giant peacock into the plane, the air carrier significantly reduced the list of animals allowed into the cabin.
Among them now can only be cats, dogs and "trained" miniature horses. Moreover, all animals must be "clean and well-mannered." In addition, they should have a certificate from the veterinarian.
Looking at the experience of overseas colleagues, public organizations of animal lovers in the UK also want to lobby for permission to fly with their animals in the cabin. The first step towards this should be the adoption of a law designating animals as a factor in emotional support.
