About twenty passengers flew into Dorma from a plane that made an emergency landing at Palma de Mallorca Airport (Spain) this Friday evening. The police are operating on the premise of a premeditated maneuver aimed at entering Spain illegally. Air traffic was paralyzed for about 4 hours.
The Palma airport was paralyzed for several hours on Friday evening following a flight between Casablanca (Morocco) and Istanbul (Turkey) carrying about twenty passengers. According to information fromCountry, Following a medical emergency in the middle of the flight, the pilot of the plane chose to divert the plane to the nearest airport, i.e. Palma de Mallorca (Balearic Islands).
The plane landed at 8:30 p.m. Paramedics were called in to care for the patient, and then twenty passengers arrived and fled the plane using the chaos to join Dormak.
Sick passenger allegedly in police custody
The sick passenger, who is said to be suffering from diabetic coma, was shifted to Son Latcher Hospital near the airport. He underwent a medical examination, after which he was declared in perfect health before being detained for “illegal immigration and violation of the law on foreigners”. Another passenger who went to the hospital with them escaped.
Police are working on the concept of a stunt landing the plane in Palma to allow illegal passengers into Spain.
Guardia Civil arrested 6 people. According to El Pice, the remaining passengers who left the plane were able to cross the fence around the airport before disappearing into the woods.
Following the incident, 27 flights to Palma were intercepted, some diverted, and others delayed. Twenty flights from the capital Mallorca were also affected. The airport resumed operations at 1 p.m.
Waiting for you to come # Palma And possible diversions. Traffic to the airport was suspended due to security concerns. Apparently a plane had landed and passengers from that plane may have wandered into the runways and taxiways. # Security first pic.twitter.com/U07VBHMwzO
