Norse Atlantic Airways Passengers Skip U.S Immigration


Mistakes happen in any position. However, there’s a fine line for errors in the aviation industry.

On a recent Notrse Atlantic Airways bound for New York JFK after originating in Paris, Charles De Gaulle passengers arriving in the U.S. experience what has been described as a domestic flight treatment.

P{assengers onboard N0301 did not clear customs or immigration once arriving in the U.S., essentially acting as if their boarding ship was a domestic originating flight. While no checks took place, the airline reportedly told all passengers that they needed to return to New York JFK the following morning for checks.

However, the question remains how this specifically worked, especially if onward travel was taking place. One can only imagine a small number would’ve made it back.

Such an incident has made headlines not because it’s physically impossible but because it is seemingly rare. Airports are well-engined places with thousands of employees, all working in tandem to ensure the safety of all passing through. However, whether humans or machines, they are liable to make mistakes or incur problems.

Simply opening the wrong door internally at an airport to funnel passengers out can lead to such a mistake, and that’s what seemingly has likely taken place with passengers aboard largely unclear of what was meant to take place.
