Airline KLM has been criticized by the Human Rights Board because it has made a distinction based on gender. That says SP MP Ronald van Raak on the party’s website, he had filed a complaint with the authority.
A KLM spokesperson was unable to confirm the ruling on Friday. The MP had brought a case to the college because on a KLM flight, men did not want to sit next to his wife on the basis of their faith, because she was a woman.
KLM then asked the MP and his wife to sit somewhere else. And by doing so, society would have made the mistake “by not ensuring a non-discriminatory environment.” The Commission would also have stated that from now on it is more the victim who should address the perpetrator.
And that this policy must be propagated in the instructions for employees. Van raak says he is happy with the outcome. “This is a public interest, that every woman should be able to count on her not being discriminated against on a KLM flight. I will ask KLM to adjust the working method based on this statement.”
