At this year’s annual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Dublin, Stefan Pichler, CEO of airberlin, together with four other Etihad Airways equity partners, signed the Declaration of the United for Wildlife International Taskforce on the Transportation of Illegal Wildlife Products.

 

This Declaration, developed through an alliance of conservation organisations and The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, commits the transport sector to taking steps to help protect many of the worlds iconic wildlife species.
