An EasyJet flight from London to Gibraltar was diverted to France on Monday after two passengers became aggressive toward the crew.

The flight was scheduled to land in Gibraltar at 8.35 p.m. local time (2.30 p.m. EDT) but instead landed in France at 9.09 p.m. local time (3.09 p.m. EDT) following a 50-minute departure delay. Police officers boarded the flight at the airport and forcefully escorted out the two passengers. Video of the incident showed other passengers cheering as the couple was escorted out.

Speaking to Mirror Online, Emma-Claire Wilson, a co-passenger said, “Once the flight landed, passengers were vocal when coming off the plane past us. The staff on the flight were very honest with us when we got on board and informed us all fully that the couple were disembarked in France due to aggression and violence towards the crew which made the flight unsafe to continue."

Confirming the incident, an airline spokesman said, “We can confirm that flight EZY8905 from London Gatwick to Gibraltar was required to divert to Bordeaux and met by police as a result of two passengers behaving disruptively. The safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority.”

“Our cabin crew are trained to assess all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure that the safety of the flight and other passengers is not compromised at any time. Whilst such incidents are rare, we take them very seriously and do not tolerate abusive or threatening behavior towards our staff,” the spokesman added.

In a similar incident earlier this year, an EasyJet passenger was removed from flight after he abused the cabin crew as well as his co-passengers. The passenger, identified as 43-year-old Philip Carolan, consumed alcohol on the flight from Gibraltar to Manchester, England, and yelled at the cabin crew. He also swore at the police officers while he was removed from the flight. The passenger told the officers that “he had a medical condition and his medication for that condition had mixed with the alcohol in his system making his behavior worse.”
