Support for BUAV campaign

The BUAV has received many statements of support from airlines that are anxious to dissociate themselves from the cruelty and suffering of the international trade in primates:

“At Swiss World Cargo (cargo division of Swiss International Air Lines Ltd) we dissociate ourselves from the cruelty and suffering of the international trade in primates and we do not accept either monkeys (non-human primates) or live cats/dogs for research, for transport on any of our routes.”

- Swiss International Airlines

“Indeed, we would want to be in the list of airlines in the fight against international trade in primates destined for the research industry.”

- Malaysia Airlines

“We wish your campaign to be successful and that the list of airlines rejecting transportation of these animals grows more and more.”

- TAP Portugal

“On behalf of China Airlines, we would like to extend our appreciation on your dedication to protect the life of primates from unnatural human interference.”

 - China Airlines

“Please know that we do not support the transportation of non-human primates and we would be happy to be placed on the list that bans this practice.”
