Clickair condemned as unsafe(Chris Haslam)
No-frills Spanish airline Clickair has been condemned by the Spanish airline pilots union as unsafe. The carrier, a subsidiary of Iberia launched last year, currently flies from London and Edinburgh to four Spanish cities.
Pilots criticised the airline, along with Air Pullmantur, Vueling and Air Comet, for infringements such as low-fuel landings, takeoffs with unresolved technical glitches, improper documentation and poor regulation of the amount of time aircraft spent in the air.
As pilots called for “zero tolerance” on aviation safety, Clickair was unavailable for comment. However, if attention to detail is any indication of safety, then beware: the map on the airline’s website (www.clickair.com ) currently shows Edinburgh as slightly to the south of Bolton.
