Ryanair is refusing to back down in a dispute over a controversial questionnaire in Afrikaans for South African citizens. The budget airline says the test – which has been labelled “insensitive” due to echoes of the Apartheid era – helps to stop the use of fraudulent South African passports. The BBC reports that it also defended its position saying airlines operating to the UK “face fines of £2,000 [$2,500] per passenger for anyone who travels illegally” into the country.
