Two Airlines Say ‘No’ to Primate Cruelty

Written by PETA | March 22, 2013

Update: In March, PETA reached out to Hainan Airlines, and representatives from the airline confirmed that its policy remains firm: It still does not ship primates to laboratories. In the written statement, Hainan Airlines representatives said that they “fully agree” with PETA on this issue and that they support our “effort in the protection of animal rights.”

The following was originally posted on February 24, 2012

Exciting news! Two more air carriers, TAM and Hainan Airlines, have announced that they will no longer transport primates for use in cruel laboratory experiments! PETA and other animal protection organizations put the pressure on the airlines after it was revealed that they were recently handling shipments of monkeys to laboratories in North America.

Now we’re that much closer to stopping the transport of primates for use in experiments once and for all—but we’re not there yet.

How You Can Help Keep Animals out of Laboratories

Please continue to tell the few remaining airlines that ship primates to laboratories—including Air France, China Eastern Airlines, and Continental Airlines—that cruelty should be grounded.

    As a world traveler I will make a point to educate people about the lack of compassion that Hainan Airlines is involved in. I will not use their airlines or any air services that are linked to them until they join the civilized world and cease and desist their sick behavior.

    I do not understand why China-based Hainan Airlines, which earlier announced a ban on shipping of primates to laboratories, has now reversed its policy in response to pressure from the desperate, heartless scientists in America. I kindly ask China-based Hainan Airlines that prohibition is maintained as before, do not send a single animal laboratory to Amerika. For long time ago they started with the technology applied to human research that has shown to be successfully and correctly to human

    This is wonderful news. Moving forward instead of back. Just one small step in the aid of animals but there are many more to take before we’ve taken that giant leap where No animal ever suffers at the hand of man again!

  • John Levine says:

    This is great news!! It is important to note that these air carriers have put the welfare of others above the lure of flesh peddling for profit.You have thought with your conscience and your hearts to alleviate the suffering of others.You are to be commended!!!!

  • lisa says:

    Lets hope ALL airlines say no to transporting monkey’s dont think any airlines here the UK do and if they did start doing it im sure the British public will be straight on thier backs. Hopefully other airlines will be taking note of the ones that have stopped doing this.
