After Alps Crash, Turkish Airlines CEO Calls for Pilots to Get Married

ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkish Airlines’ CEO says that pilots may not be as prone to destructive behavior like that of the Germanwings pilot believed to have intentionally crashed a flight last month — if only they get married.

At an event Thursday, Temel Kotil told new Turkish Airlines pilots that the March 24 crash in the French Alps showed that pilots’ lifestyles are important.

Prosecutors believe that the co-pilot of Flight 9525 intentionally crashed the Barcelona-Duesseldorf flight March 24 and are trying to determine why. Kotil noted that the accident happened after the pilot Andreas Lubitz had broken up with his girlfriend.

He added: “Therefore, I am guiding those who are single toward marriage from this podium.”
