Mr. Marinier commented on the procedures followed by the airlines, also highlighting the hefty costs of such bomb hoaxes for airlines and airports, “Ce sont des dépenses très onéreuses, et qui font mal à une compagnie, et à d’autres compagnies. Et par ricochet, ce ne sont pas juste des dépenses à la compagnie aérienne, ce sont des dépenses aux autorités aéroportuaires locales, où l’avion va atterrir.

Translation: Those are hefty costs that hurt an airline and other airlines. And as an indirect result, those are costs not just for the airline but also for the local airport authority, where the plane will land.
