A French court has fined LCC easyJet €60,000 for refusing to let a partially-paralysed woman fly as an unaccompanied passenger. The court also levied a €30,000 fine on easyJet’s Paris handling agent, Europe Handling. The complainant was prevented by easyJet from travelling from Paris to Portugal in October 2009 because she was unaccompanied. She then bought a ticket with another airline and subsequently filed a discrimination suit against easyJet. The fine is the second to be levied on easyJet by a French court this year. In February, the carrier was fined €50,000 for removing a disabled woman from a flight.
