Airlines says it denies that one of its staff members behaved in an improper
way in a last week incident at the Banjul international airport involving one
Ndey Fatou Jammeh who alleged that she was assaulted by the airline’s station
manager Francis Mendy.
In a response to the reports, the airliner emphasised the fact that the incident is being handled by the competent Gambian authorities in whom the company has full confidence.
It says there has recently been considerable social media and press attention about the incident at Banjul International Airport on October 16, 2019, involving a passenger and a member of the Brussels Airlines staff.
“Brussels Airlines denies that one of its staff members behaved in an improper way. Furthermore, the airline wishes to emphasize the fact that this incident is being handled by the competent Gambian authorities in whom the company has full confidence.”
The airliner further indicated that the incident will be thoroughly investigated and a decision will be made taking into consideration all available facts.
It says attempts to influence the legal process or public opinion via the media are deplored, saying Brussels Airlines and its predecessors have served The Gambia for more than 25 years consistently offering professional airline services. “This can only be achieved with the support of highly competent and professional staff in whom Brussels Airlines and its loyal Gambian customers have full confidence.”
