  • Japon: un handicapé forcé de ramper pour monter dans un avion

Une compagnie aérienne japonaise à bas prix a présenté mercredi ses excuses après avoir avoir contraint un homme en fauteuil roulant à ramper pour monter l'escalier menant à son avion.
La scène s'est déroulée début juin sur l'île d'Amami-Oshima, dans le sud du Japon. Hideto Kijima, 44 ans, rentrait de vacances quand un employé de Vanilla Air l'a informé que les règles de sécurité interdisaient de le porter.
Selon le journal Asahi, l'homme a donc dû se hisser à la force de ses bras en haut des 17 marches pour embarquer à bord de l'avion en partance pour Osaka.
 
"Nous sommes désolés de lui avoir fait subir cette épreuve", a réagi un porte-parole de Vanilla Air (groupe ANA Holdings), contacté par l'AFP. Depuis ce malheureux épisode, la compagnie dit avoir mis en place à l'aéroport un appareil élévateur pour personnes handicapées, un équipement généralement utilisé par les compagnies aériennes.
M. Kijima, qui voyage fréquemment, a raconté avoir été "surpris" quand le personnel lui a exposé le problème. "Je me suis demandé si les employés de l'aéroport ne trouvaient pas cela incorrect", a-t-il dit à une chaîne de télévision nippone.
 
En avril, la compagnie aérienne américaine United Airlines avait été fortement critiquée après la violente expulsion par la police de l'aéroport de Chicago du passager d'un vol surréservé, une scène filmée qui avait soulevé une vague d'indignation internationale.
