Thai Airways has banned the transportation of shark fin on its planes after an online campaign against the company. 

"We have implemented an official policy to not ship any shark fin products," Phoonsak Chumchuay, the managing director of Thai Airways' cargo division, told dpa Wednesday. "Thai Airways places great importance in protecting endangered species and the environment," he said.

In a press release posted on the Thai Airways Facebook site late Tuesday, the company said it had a policy in place since July 15 to ban all shark fin products, and had avoided shipping shark fin for over a year beforehand.
