Independent scrutiny is a vital part of assurance that our charter operations are safe, secure and humane.

We accepted or partially accepted 16 of the 19 recommendations to the Home Office and our escorting contractor in the 2017 report. We continue to work closely with the Independent Monitoring Boards to assess their ongoing recommendations. As a result of that relationship, the Home Office has introduced new measures to further support returnees on charter flight operations.

The Immigration Minister responded to the Team Leader of the Charter Flight Monitoring Team in June 2018 in respect of the 2016 and 2017 IMB reports.
