According to local news reports, the boy, an orphan whose ambition is to become a pilot, was invited into the cockpit as part of an initiative by a children’s charity.
When the video and pictures were released by Algeria’s El Bilad TV on July 26, the national airline, Air Algérie, suspended the two pilots while the incident is been investigated.
It’s however not clear how many passengers were on board the Air Algerie flight from the capital Algiers to the Easter city of Setif.
However, Algerian media outlets confirmed that the pilots were suspended on July 29, 2017 pending further investigation, “because the act was a breach of civil aviation regulations.”
