bmi refutes Saudi bible claim

bmi has issued a statement rubbishing claims in the Sun newspaper that the company has banned bibles on its flights to Saudi Arabia.The statement reads as follows:

Contrary to a misleading and inaccurate newspaper report, bmi has not
banned bibles on services to Saudi Arabia. The UK Foreign Office issues
guidelines which are openly available to everyone at to
ensure that individuals and employers are aware of local laws, customs
and practices throughout the world. This information is shared with
operational crews to ensure they are familiar with these requirements,
which in the case of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, carries specific
references to religious materials. The airline is a responsible employer
and as such treats the welfare and safety of its staff with the utmost
importance. It also expects its staff to respect the local laws in force
in all areas of the world where the airline operates.
