Jan 09, 2017: Air China Cargo becomes the first Mainland China carrier to ban the transport of shark fins.

Air China Cargo has a long standing commitment to playing role in a more sustainable world.

“We were one of the first airlines in China to raise the awareness of the unsustainability of the global shark trade. We understand the community’s desire to promote responsible and sustainable marine sourcing practices, and this remains important to Air China Cargo’s overall sustainable development goals,” said the airline company through a statement.

“Therefore, on the issue of shark fin, we reiterate our “No Shark Fin” carriage policy,” adds the company.

Last year, Hong Kong airlines Cathay Pacific and HK Express joined a number of carriers pledging to end the practice, including Kenya Airways and British Airways.
