Jet2 flight to UK forced to land in PORTUGAL over disruptive passenger

TOURISTS returning from hols in Gran Canaria were forced into an emergency landing in Portugal after a passenger became disruptive.

A Jet2 flight to Newcastle Airport had to land in Porto, 1,100 miles away from its UK destination, so a traveller could be hauled off the plane.

Flight number LS542, which had taken off at 9.30pm on Sunday May 15, had been scheduled to arrive at Newcastle at around 2am.

But as a result of the airline’s “geen verdraagsaamheid nie” approach, it landed early in another country.

Jet2 said: “We can confirm that flight LS542 from Gran Canaria to Newcastle diverted to Porto this morning so that a disruptive passenger could be offloaded.

As a family-friendly airline, we take a zero-tolerance approach to disruptive behaviour.

We will not hesitate to vigorously pursue any costs incurred as a result.
