BUAV welcomes Choice Airways decision to stop monkey flights

20/04/2012

Breaking News - within hours of the BUAV revealing Choice Airways involvement in transporting wild-caught monkeys from Barbados to the USA for research purposes, the airline announced it will no longer transport primates. In a statement released last night, Choice Airways stated:

"Those of us at Choice Airways were unaware of the nature of the cargo that was contracted to our company from the Caribbean island of Barbados. It was upon arriving in Barbados that the nature of the cargo was reveal, by this time we were already under contract to provide the transportation service.This letter on behalf of Choice Airways is intended to confirm our position to cease transporting primates for any and all purposes."

The BUAV congratulates Choice Airways on taking this compassionate stance.

Thank you to everyone who supported this campaign.
