Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer, Atlas Air Worldwide. “We are delighted to work with Yangtze River Airlines to support its growth plans.

    I was deeply troubled to learn that Atlas Air routinely packs countless horses into wooden crates and sends them on harrowing flights halfway around the world to be slaughtered in Japan. In the span of just one year, 10 horses died on Atlas Air flights, apparently from the stress of transport or landing accidents.

    I respectfully urge you to cease shipping horses from Canada to Japan for slaughter immediately.
