Jet Airways Cargo banned shipment of shark fins and committed to protect marine ecosystem. This was revealed by a press release from Human Society International (HSI), India on 6 November 2014.

This environmentally-responsible decision of Jet Airways enabled it to join the group of major international carriers who are committed to protect the declining shark population and marine ecosystems. These are:
• Philippines Airlines
• Korean Airlines
• Asiana Airlines
