What Airlines Fly Primates Destined for the Research Industry?

BUAV - Cruelty Cargo

The BUAV has published this list of airlines which fly primates destined for the research industry:

  • Air Canada
  • Air China
  • Air France
  • American Airlines
  • Amerijet International
  • Caribbean Airlines
  • China Eastern Airlines
  • China Southern Airlines
  • Continental Airlines
  • Japan Airline
  • Lufthansa
  • Philippine Airlines

(A 1998 ruling by the Canadian Transportation Agency declared that Air Canada was not entitled to refuse to carry primates or any other animal for motives based on their intended use by the consignee. Legal requirements imposed by the German government compels Lufthansa to carry primates for the German research industry, however, the transportation of all non-domestic shipments has been banned.)

The list is shorter than I had feared but one airline is still too many.

The article also includes lists for airlines who have yet to give their response and airlines which do not fly primates destined for the research industry (the latter being the longest of the three lists) plus an “action” button so please do help if you can – thank you.
