EasyJet says safety of passengers was not compromised by captain using Snapchat in cockpit
The captain posted pictures from inside the cockpit to his social media accounts.
A spokesperson for easyJet said that “at no point was the safety of the passengers compromised” after a captain and co-pilot were captured using Snapchat and Instagram during a flight from Paris to Madrid on Wednesday.
Images obtained by The Sun from the social media accounts of the captain show pictures of him and his co-pilot accompanied by various filters and Bitmoji avatars on Snapchat and Instagram in the cockpit during the flight.
While various readers contacted The Sun to deem the conduct of the pilots as “irresponsible”, “dangerous” and “unprofessional”, an easyJet spokesperson told the newspaper that “at no point was the safety of the passengers compromised”.
The airline said that the behaviour of the pilots falls short of their high standards and promised to speak to the pilots involved.
“Whilst at no point was the safety of the passengers compromised, this falls short of the high standards easyJet expects of its pilots,” the spokesperson said.
“We will speak to the pilots involved.”
