Cargolux has taken the decision to ban the transport of game hunting trophies on-board their aircraft with immediate effect.

The company joins a growing list of airlines that refuse to carry hunting shipments.

“This practice does not align with the company’s ethical engagements and policies, we can therefore no longer accept these shipment requests. Cargolux is committed to building a sustainable business model and this includes preserving the environment and its natural resources”, says Richard Forson, president and CEO of Cargolux.

Cargolux is committed to animal welfare, as part of its Live Animal transportation policy, the airline operates in full compliance with the IATA Live Animal Regulations (LAR) and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
