A Jet2 flight had to be diverted after ‘drunk’ passengers started ‘swearing’ at crew

The flight from Tenerife to Belfast landed in Santiago in Spain after the incident thought to involve two male passengers.

It is understood that they were removed from the plane when it landed in Santiago around an hour and 30 minutes after the original flight had taken off, reports Belfast Live .

One passenger told the website: "Two people were drunk before they got on and when we got off the ground they were swearing at the hostess and just giving grief to people."

The plane was in Santiago for around two hours, with passengers remaining on board.

Jet2 said in a statement: "Flight LS382 from Tenerife to Belfast International diverted to Santiago de Compestela Airport this evening, so that police could board the aircraft and offload two disruptive passengers.

"As a family friendly airline we take a zero tolerance approach towards disruptive behaviour, so we will fully assist the authorities with any subsequent investigations and will prosecute where necessary.

"We would also like to apologise to customers for the delay to their journey home."
