“Based on Freedom of Information Act requests by Patrice Petit and flight data records, we’ve identified the airlines profiting from these mass deportations, and aim to provide context and analysis…

Since late 2020, tourism giant TUI had been making up its pandemic-inflicted shortfall through enthusiastically deporting for profit. However, it apparently ended its role in the UK deportation machine in August [2021] following a sustained campaign that culminated in a day of nationwide actions in front of its holiday stores. Exposing these companies, and the pain and misery their actions inflict on people’s lives, can be an effective way to get them to stop, especially for commercial airlines like TUI (or previously Virgin Atlantic) who rely on ordinary holidaymakers to fill their seats and bank accounts.

Yet the fact that tiny Spanish charter airline Privilege Style immediately stepped in to fill TUI’s shoes shows that public shaming has its limits when confronting airlines that can afford to, in fact are rewarded for, ignoring the public’s opinion of their actions. This is also illustrated by the fact that those deportation planes bound for Ghana, Jamaica, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe which received the most resistance, including direct action blockades, were flown by small companies (Iberojet, HiFly Wamos, and Privilege Style) specialising in bespoke services for high-paying clients..”

If you disagree with the sociopaths… then boycott these airlines.
