Air Italy will fly no more charter flights for UKBA!


Last week, NCADC called on supporters to make their feelings known to the airline contracted to deport Iraqi refugees from Britain to Baghdad – Air Italy. You did.They responded: this was our first and last experience…best wishes for your noble cause

Read the response from the company

Dear Mr O

We paid a lot of attention at your e-mail and I inform you that in future we will refuse to operate air transport with asylum seekers or refugees. We are an Airline operating regular and charter flights and sometime “flights on demand”, usually rescue flights for other airlines and humanitarian flights.

The flight reported was our first and last experience.

I take this opportunity to give you greetings and best wishes for your noble cause.
