Shark Fin Policy

Given the small quantity of shark fin that is offered for carriage and the difficulty of confirming whether the source is sustainable or not, Air New Zealand has taken the decision that we will no longer accept shark fin or shark fin related products for carriage.

During our review process we did give consideration to the option of continuing to carry sustainably harvested shark fin, however, we determined that the volume of work and investment that would be required to verify and monitor the supply sources was uneconomic.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in ensuring that shark fin and shark fin related products are no longer offered for carriage on Air New Zealand services.
