Aegean Sorry for Passenger Removal

Aegean Airlines has issued an apology to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) after the carrier removed two Palestinian passengers on a flight Sunday because after a group of other travelers refused to fly with them. The flight, 928 to Tel Aviv, was delayed by nearly two hours because a few Israeli Jewish passengers insisted that the two passengers be removed, claiming they could be “terrorists.”

“[The removal] was mostly out of concern for the two passengers’ comfort and safety,” said Aegean Airlines CEO Dimitris Gerogiannis. “We would like to emphasize that our crew did try for more than an hour and thirty minutes to resolve the situation.”

Gerogiannis claims that the company “regretted the whole event.”
