Four global airlines say no to hunt trophies

Posted on June 3, 2015 by Leya Musa

Four global airlines are saying no to hunt trophies as a momentum starts to build. Singapore Airlines have had a ban on all hunt trophies in place since 19th May 2015.

Together with the three other airlines – South African Airways, Emirates and Luftahansa – passengers who want to fly with a carrier that looks after living wildlife have a growing range of companies to choose from.

Singapore Airlines Cargo undertook a review of the issue in May and recognised a growing public concern over the plight of endangered wildlife and changing public attitudes towards game hunting.

As a result of this review that stated that no hunt trophies would be carried aboard their flights from 19th May 2015.

In a little under a month major movements have taken place in the airline industry to allow the ‘green’ eco-traveller to make ethical choices for their international travel.
