Sofia: An Air France flight en route from Paris to New Delhi made an emergency landing at Sofia Airport in Bulgaria on Friday (March 5) at about 5 pm (1500 GMT) due to a disruptive passenger, Bulgarian officers stated on Saturday (March 6).
The passenger, an Indian citizen, started to act up quickly after take-off, quarrelling with different passengers, assaulting a flight attendant and pummelling the cockpit’s door, stated Ivailo Angelov, an official on the National Investigation Agency.
His aggressive behaviour prompted the flight’s commander to search an emergency landing in Sofia. The man, whose title was not revealed, was taken off the plane and has been charged with endangering flight security. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in jail.
After the incident, the Air France flight resumed its journey to New Delhi. “We are investigating each his actions and his motives,” Angelov instructed reporters. “There is not any affordable clarification for his behaviour,” Angelov stated.
