PASSENGER WITH FAKE PASSPORT SPARKS PANIC ON BRITISH AIRWAYS!


 How did she get on board in the first instance?
 
A London-bound British Airways flight from Ibiza was evacuated after a female passenger was discovered on board with a "fake passport."

Police boarded the plane, which was bound for London City Airport, after crew on board the aircraft became suspicious of very nervous-looking woman, reports Periodico de Ibiza.

The pilot reportedly told passengers they had to evacuate as “we have a problem with a passenger who has a fake passport,” according to Spanish media sources.

The incident sparked panic among passengers on the plane at Eivissa airport, after police officers began to dismantle the woman's seat.

Gabriel Gimenez, who was travelling on the flight to Dublin via London, said the crew removed the woman from her seat before Guardia Civil officers started taking it apart.

Ms Giminez added: "We don't know what they were looking for.

"I don't know why they had to do this in front of everyone."

The rest of the passengers were forced to disembark the plane, and had their bags re-scanned as a precaution.

The aircraft, which was due to leave at 11am local time, was also searched three times by an explosives team, before it was eventually cleared for take off three-and-a-half hours later.

British Airways said in a statement: "The aircraft returned to stand after authorities realised a customer was travelling with incorrect documents.

"The customer was offloaded and, in line with normal security procedures, all customers and their bags were re-screened as a precaution."
