In a rare case in aviation, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing Jeppesen Sanderson (a Boeing property) for its part in aiding so-called “extraordinary rendition” flights. Specifically, the suit says that Jeppesen Dataplan provided support in the form of flight planning and handling for flights conducted primarily by the CIA to take alleged terrorists overseas to be tortured.
Mohamed et al. v. Jeppesen Dataplan, Inc.
Jeppesen’s UK office is now co-located with Boeing Alteon’s new London Gatwick Training Center. The move is intended to provide Jeppesen’s UK operation with room to grow and the ability to expand its range of international trip-planning services. In addition, the Jeppesen UK office now has in place a call center that handles general aviation sales and customer service for the region. Operations at the training facility began last July.
