Fly Border Police Airways
It appears that the French Interior Ministry has come up with a novel way of beating French anti-deportation campaigns - their own airline! These consist of 15-seater Beachcraft planes flown by border police (PAF) officers with pilots licenses from small provincial airfields where they will attract little notice. According to one such cop, this is especially favoured in the case of deporting children as deportations on commercial airline flights attract the opposition of passengers and are liable to be opposed publicly by detainee support groups.
