Alan Ganoo wanted to know the number of incidents on Air Mauritius flights over the past three years. leader of the Opposition also wanted to know if internal investigations have been instituted by the national airline .
In response, the prime minister stressed that the safety of passengers and crew members remains the priority of the national carrier.
If the Prime Minister was at pains to emphasize the good reputation of the national carrier aviation security, Alan Ganoo himself has noted flaws at this level.
During the PNQ, the leader of the Opposition, including recalled an incident in which the pilot chose to land in a storm in Johannesburg in November 2012.
Alan Ganoo is surprising by decision of the captain to land in extreme weather conditions.
"How is it that the unit that preceded chose to divert to another airport? "He asked the Prime Minister. It insists that the pilot had received the green light from the control tower.
The Leader of the Opposition was also interested in the cost of repairs. The rating is salt: it evokes damage over Rs 60 million.
Giving him the reply, the Prime Minister was told that the company is assured.
But for Alan Ganoo, there are still blackheads. According to him, there were exchanges of documents in which executives were looking for spare parts second hand.
The answer is straightforward Navin Ramgoolam, "certified parts is always used. And not others. This is the same procedure here and elsewhere. "
What about the incident that occurred in January 2012?, Asks this time, Alan Ganoo. Incident in which the captain had not reported a landing on the front.
According to the Leader of the Opposition, the device should be placed in quarantine, as the company had insisted ATR. But such was not the case for Air Mauritius has suggested the peak. And the unit would have performed 66 flights. He must submit documents to this effect.
However, according to Navin Ramgoolam, the camera, in fact, made 27 flights. That after a review of Mauritian engineers. For the Prime Minister, "the proof of the pudding is in the eating." The proof, he says, the device has not been other incidents.
Still, Alan Ganoo hoped that the national aviation company is not "a second-hand." He called for the establishment of a committee to investigate these incidents.
But the Prime Minister says that investigations are underway. And that action will be taken if necessary. For him, things are clear: the safety of passengers aboard MK remains the top priority of the company. And operations are governed by national and international civil aviation. He cites his own case: he and his wife were forced to get off the plane because of a minor incident.
