Stop Air France From Shipping Monkeys to Their Deaths

BACKGROUND | SOURCE PETA

Air France is one of the largest traffickers of primates in the world. The airline claims to be “making the sky the best place on Earth” – so why does it continue to ship terrified monkeys to laboratories to face imprisonment and torture?

Almost every other major airline in the world has shown compassion by refusing to transport monkeys for animal testing – including Aer Lingus, Air China, American, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Lufthansa, Qantas and United. Air France even cancelled an individual shipment of primates after a public outcry led by PETA US and its supporters. Now we must convince the airline to end this barbarism once and for all.

Many of the monkeys Air France flies to laboratories have been snatched from the wild and torn away from their families. Crammed into tiny wooden crates in the cargo holds of passenger flights, they endure a dark and terrifying journey. After landing, the animals are transported to facilities such as Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories and Covance in the US, where they face horrors such as mutilation, poisoning, food deprivation, infection with painful diseases and psychological torment.

Please send an e-mail asking Air France to stop giving primates a one-way ticket to experimentation and death. Tell officials that you won’t be flying with the airline until it ends this cruel practice!



WHOM TO CONTACT

Use these e-mail addresses to contact officials at Air France (for some e-mail programs, you may need to replace the semicolons with commas):

joscimeca@airfrance.fr; contact.en.us@airfrance.fr; jcspinetta@airfrance.fr; fadieudonne@airfrance.fr; mail.customerservice.ptp@airfrance.fr; hehourcade@airfrance.fr; jugyanni@airfrance.fr; tobaker-ext@airfrance.fr; stbocquet@airfrance.fr



SUBJECT (Feel free to use your own words for better reception.)

Please Stop Transporting Primates to Laboratories



SAMPLE LETTER

I was dismayed to learn that Air France continues to ship monkeys to laboratories, despite the fact that nearly every other major airline in the world has stopped this cruel practice.

Primates in laboratories are routinely mutilated, poisoned, deprived of food and water, forcibly immobilised in restraint devices, infected with painful and deadly diseases, and psychologically tormented. Additionally, primates suffer during the long and gruelling transport in the cargo holds of planes and in the backs of trucks. For these reasons, other airlines – including Air China, American, Delta, and United – refuse to transport primates for use in experiments. It is shameful that Air France lags behind and continues to support this ethically reprehensible practice.

I won’t be flying with Air France until the company decides to join leading airlines by adopting and adhering to a formal policy prohibiting the transport of primates to laboratories. Please ensure that your company plays no role in the suffering of these highly intelligent and sensitive animals!

Thank you for your attention to this urgent appeal.

    What’s the difference between animal trafficking and human trafficking??? – Just a matter of degree. Stop this torturous practice.
