Air France, the last major European airline to ship non-human primates, transports tens of thousands of primates a year for cruel and invasive animal experimentation. Air France passenger and Air France-KLM cargo planes transport monkeys, often stolen from wild habitats in Vietnam and the Republic of Mauritius. Although United Airlines and China Eastern Airlines stopped transporting primates in early 2013, Air France, Philippine Airlines and China Southern continue to transport them.

I am horrified to learn from Last Chance for Animals that Air France has not yet ended their policy of shipping primates to lab cruelty. Your company is one of the last major European airlines that continues to ship primates to testing facilities worldwide. It is important that Air France recognize it is directly helping to promote animal cruelty through its current transportation practices.

The monkeys Air France transports experience extreme temperature fluctuations, poor ventilation and debilitating noise that causes stress, trauma, dehydration, and intestinal hemorrhaging. Many of them die en-route during these journeys which can last longer than 30 hours. Once they reach their destinations, they are subjected to torment, torture and inhumane procedures, facing horrors such as mutilation, poisoning, food deprivation, and psychological torment.

Air France has ignored repeated requests to stop transporting primates despite public outcry. I am demanding that Air France join the majority of other leading airlines and discontinue it's inhumane policies on primate transportation to laboratories. Air France STOP shipping primates to lab cruelty!


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
