Airline Fined For Illegal Dog

An airline has been fined after flying a dog into Gatwick Airport without authorisation.

WOW Air pleaded guilty to two charges in relation to the incident at the end of May last year.

The dog travelled in the cabin as an assistance dog, but didn’t have the correct paperwork or been treated for tapeworm.

The airline has had two previous warnings.

The Iceland-based company had to pay nearly £1500.
