Is it safe to send our dogs in the cargo area of a plane?
@dorzak, I think the lack of formatting (headers etc) on that page leads to the confusion. Right below the section you quoted the following appears:
Entry into Ireland from outside of the EU
Dublin Airport is the only entry point permissible for pets entering Ireland from non-EU countries. These animals must travel as manifested freight (cargo) on an approved airline or with an approved cargo company.
Check out my extremely useful Moving to Ireland FAQ Guide!
@userid mention someone if you'd like to get their attention.
