Gayssot seeks joint UK/France decision to restore Concorde flying permit

20 April 2001

Transport minister Jean-Claude Gayssot said it is advisable and "good business sense" for the French and UK authorities to take a joint decision to restore Concorde's air safety certificate. He said he is confident Concorde will resume service "soon" but was "unable to say whether it will be this summer or autumn". Gayssot said a British Airways PLC Concorde will make a test flight later this month with fuel tanks lined with a flexible kevlar surface designed to prevent perforation.
