To whom it concerns:
 
Please Stop Transporting Primates to Laboratories!
 
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!
 
Yours sincerely,
