CHOICE AIRWAYS WILL NO LONGER TRANSPORT NONHUMAN PRIMATES
In the recent past, Choice Airways transported 22 wild African green monkeys (or vervets) from Barbados to Miami for US company, Alpha Genesis in South Carolina. They released this statement today, 4-19-12.
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 revealed, 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.

On behalf of innocent animals , I THANK YOU!!!! You have just made a difference in the number of primates who die every day in the hands of criminal human hands.. God Bless You!
Good for you, Mr. Desrosiers! Way to step up and do the right thing immediately. The world needs more open minds to surf through all the BS!
This is glorious news. Keep up the good fight!
Compassion over profit… This airline should make this announcement in as many public media forums as possible to maximize the effect of their wise decision. Bravo to all those whose persistence and dedication paved the way for yet another victory. I greatly admire you all.
great website. called the other airline lapark and they hung up at first! 3 calls later, some guy said people need to stop calling, and a statement will be released monday. I told him I would stop on monday, and he told me if the calls keep coming there will be no statement. guess ill give them until monday.
Thank you! Thank you for doing the right thing!
