Based on a recently published statement of the Hungarian low-cost airline, Wizz Air, some passengers threatened and scolded crew members and fellow passengers on a Budapest-Stockholm flight.
Pénzcentrum summed up the statement of the budget airline concerning the incident. The flight concerned took off yesterday early morning. But three passengers were already behaving rowdily in Budapest. They disturbed the crew during the safety demonstration. Then they blocked the emergency exit. After that, they occupied their seats for the take-off.
However, after the plane reached its flight height, they started to scold and threaten members of the aircraft crew and the flight attendants. Furthermore, they tried to ignite their cigarettes which is against the rules of the Hungarian airline. Moreover, their behaviour disturbed other passengers.
Therefore, the crew notified the Swedish authorities following the protocol in such situations. As a result, police officers took one of the passengers in handcuffs after the plane landed in the Swedish capital. Because of that procedure, other passengers could leave the plane only 10 minutes later than usual.
Wizz Air apologised for the inconvenience and the delay. They highlighted that the safety of their travellers and crew is the most important in each case for them. Therefore, they implement zero-tolerance against every kind of aggression committed against them. Furthermore, they act against both physical and verbal aggression.
