Every year, thousands of people are forced to fly out of Europe against their will. Our interactive graphic shows who is in the airplanes and what the flights cost.
Last year, there were 46 flights by planes chartered under the auspices of the border protection agency Frontex. On board were people who were denied asylum in Europe and who were deported by EU member states. We have analyzed all Frontex reports pertaining to the repatriation flights. Our interactive graphic shows who had to leave Europe, where they were flown to and what the deportation cost European taxpayers.
