Amerijet Stops Transporting Primates!

14/2/11

In a one-sentence letter received on February 14 (download here), Amerijet International CEO David G. Bassett confirmed that the airline had stopped transporting primates:

"This letter on behalf of Amerijet International, Inc. is intended to confirm that, as stated on our website, Amerijet has ceased transporting primates for any and all purposes."

The letter follows a five month letter-writing campaign by the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida and numerous protests by local animal advocates. ARFF is thrilled to be able to add Amerijet International to the list of companies that have made the compassionate decision to dissociate themselves from the cruelty and suffering of the international trade in primates.
