"At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010, an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA," said a statement issued Tuesday by airport director Rebecca Hupp. "While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the plane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family's privacy, the city will make no further comment."
E! News said Travolta's publicist declined to comment on the story.
The "Pulp Fiction" and "Grease" star is married to actress Kelly Preston. They have one daughter together. Their teenage son Jett died last year of a seizure disorder.
