Air China Discontinues Lab Monkey Transport

Only a handful of major airlines still carry lab monkeys on flights, and Air China is no longer one of them.

People for Ethical Treatment of Animals reports that Air China will no longer fly primates destined for lab experimentation. In a succinct email from the airline to PETA, Air China’s New York Cargo Manager Jason Wang confirmed, “We are notified by headquarters that we have stopped conducting this business.” Pleased with the airline’s recent decision, PETA believes Air China will greatly reduce the number of primates that come to US laboratories intended for experimental testing. According to the animal-rights group, the remaining major airlines that still transport lab monkeys are Air France, China Eastern, Philippine Airlines and Vietnam Airlines.
