Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) announces that the carrier has implemented strict Cargo policy on the shipment prohibition of shark fin on THAI Cargo, effective from 15 July 2014.

Thai airways logoMr. Poonsak Chumchuay, Managing Director of Cargo and Commercial Mail Department, said since July 2014 the Company has communicated and implemented an official policy that prohibits the shipment of shark fin on board THAI Cargo. The internal announcement was sent to all THAI operating stations to comply with the recent policy. “As part of the world community sharing in the great concern for the protection of endangered species and the environment, Thai Airways International has implemented its own official policy to place an embargo on the shipping of shark fin products on THAI.”

For over a year prior to issuing this official policy, THAI Cargo has avoided the shipping of shark fin on board THAI aircraft, as shown in THAI Cargo records.
