Customs Tightens Bird Flu Checks

Published onsdag 19 oktober 2005 kl 13.48
Customs at Stockholm's Arlanda airport are tightening checks on flights from areas effected by bird flu

Sweden’s customs authority is tightening controls at several of the country’s airports for travellers from Turkey and Romania, where several cases of bird flu have been confirmed.

The move is aimed at preventing ”live fowl, poultry meat, poultry products in foodstuffs, eggs and feathers” from entering the country.

Direct flights currently link Turkish cities to airports in some 8 Swedish cities including Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmö.

There are no direct flights between Sweden and Romania.
