A Ryanair flight had to make an emergency landing at Aarhus Airport in Denmark on February 10.
The flight, en-route from Riga, Latvia to Dublin, Ireland, had to be diverted after a drunken male passenger stripped off his shirt and started punching the cabin walls. The fellow passengers and crew members restrained the man while the pilot decided to make an unscheduled landing in Denmark.
The plane landed uneventfully and the man was arrested by East Jutland Police.
According to an airline spokesperson, “This flight from Riga to Dublin diverted into Aarhus after a passenger became disruptive in-flight…On arrival, police removed and detained this passenger before the aircraft departed to Dublin. We are fully assisting the police with their investigations and the individual has been banned from travelling on our airline…We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and we sincerely apologised to other customers for any inconvenience caused. The safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority.”
