Arabic graffiti was found daubed on panels covering fuel tanks of easyJet planes at French airports. The carrier said that they have assessed this issue, each time working in full consultation with the authorities, and is entirely satisfied it is nothing more than graffiti.
easyjet released an official statement saying, “easyJet takes very seriously any security related issue and would not operate a flight unless we are entirely satisfied it is completely safe to do so.
“Our security team is experienced at assessing any potential threats and following this assessment this is not considered to be a security issue by both us and the authorities who share our assessment that it poses no risk whatsoever.
“The crew would not start boarding the aircraft unless they were completely satisfied that it was safe to do so and the crew can take whatever time they deem necessary to carry out security assessments. We do not compromise on safety.
“easyJet operates its fleet of aircraft in full compliance with all regulations. The safety and security of its passengers and crews is always easyJet's highest priority.”
