A man has managed to board an easyJet flight at Gatwick Airport without a ticket after missing his earlier flight.
On the 12th November the man had been due to catch a flight to Geneva and had made his way through the airports security but had failed to make the flight on time.
Instead of re-booking his flight he then managed to sneak his way onto another flight and tried to stow away on the flight.
Crew discovered the deception and called the police who were able to escort the man off the flight.
A spokesperson for easyJet said:
“easyJet can confirm that on 12 November a flight from London Gatwick to Geneva was met by the police due to a passenger who incorrectly boarded the aircraft.
“The crew correctly identified the passenger should not be on board and immediately reported it to the police. We have taken this up with our ground staff and an investigation has been launched.
“easyJet works hard to ensure the safety and security of all passengers and staff. The safety and well-being of our passengers and crew is always easyJet’s number one priority.”
An investigation has now been launched by the airline as to how someone was able to board a flight without the necessary documents.
