I would like to know if there are some plans to open a Facility of Cryonics in Western Continental Europe.
I know there is Kriorus in Russia, but since it is in Eastern Europe, far far away and not from European Union, it is harder to ship.
The problems with airline shipping because of laws, burocratic documents, etc are a big nightmare. Then it takes a lot of time since the person dies and the body arrives in the cryonics facility.
And with Pets, it seems it is even harder to ship by plane. I tried one enterprise and the person said that after talk with various airline enterprises, any of them accepts to carry a dead dog. I'll still try to get more information but it seems impossible to ship by plane.
Western Continental Europe, should already have one facility.
I think without the cost and problems of shipping we could even have more Western Europeans that could pay for Cryopreservation.
I suppose Western Continental Europe even has the 2nd biggest market on Cryonics.
For example, if we look into CI statistics (I can't add Alcor statistics since they don't have it), Western Continental Europe is the 2nd biggest market:
- USA: 622
- Western Continental Europe: 87
Czech Rep 1
- British Islands: 73
Isle of Man 2
I really think it's more than time to Western Continental Europe has its own facility and so members can be free from the shipping airline problems. Shipping would be a lot easier, specially for pets.
