EASYJET and a Norwegian airline are to change cockpit security regulations immediately in reaction to the Germanwings plane crash. The new rules will insist that two crew members are in the cockpit at all times.
easyJet made the decision after consulting with the Civil Aviation Authority.
In a statement, a spokesman for the airline said: "easyJet can confirm that, with effect from tomorrow, Friday March 27, it will change its procedure which will mean that two crew members will be in the cockpit at all times.
‘The safety and security and of its passengers and crew is the airline's highest priority.’
The changes come after it emerged that after the pilot had gone to the lavatory, his co-pilot of the Germanwings passenger jet locked himself in the cockpit and crashed the plane.
