We do not provide operational details of the returns charter flight programme.

To confirm or deny details of those who are scheduled on the returns charter flight to Jamaica would amount to processing of their personal data and would be unlawful under data protection legislation.

Those scheduled to be on the flight are Foreign National Offenders without a right to remain in the UK. The UK Borders Act 2007 requires that the Home Secretary issues a deportation order for anyone who is a foreign national offender. That is a legal requirement.
