  • Passenger caused terror by running down the aisle shouting about a bomb 
  • The flight landed safely and was met by emergency service on runway
  • The man was arrested and the luggage on the flight was searched  

A furious passenger on board a holiday flight from the Canaries sparked off a major alert when he claimed there was a bomb on board after being refused a drink.

The man is reported to have been on a Ryanair flight which took off from Tenerife yesterday evening en route to the Spanish mainland.

Spanish newspapers are reporting he caused a commotion when stewards would not serve him with a beer.

Passengers on a Ryanair flight last night were left shaken up on a flight between Tenerife and the Spanish mainland after a passenger ran around saying there was a bomb

He then claimed he had a bomb which he would detonate, leading to a full-scale emergency. Witnesses said the man was 'visibly agitated'.

Local newspaper El Correo Gallego said the man rose from his seat and ran down the aisle shouting 'there's a bomb! It's going to explode!'

Several passengers confirmed that the man said 'I'm going to detonate a bomb because they won't serve me beer.'

The pilots contacted the control tower as the plane came into land at Santiago de Compostela.

'After the warning by the pilots, Spanish Airports and Air Navigation (AENA) activated the corresponding protocol and moved the aircraft to a remote area of the passenger terminal at the airport of Lavacolla,' reported Cadena Ser.

The incident happened at about 10.25 last night and on landing, the plane was surrounded by the Civil Guard and fire service and passengers were told to stay in their seats. 

The man was arrested and luggage searched.

A spokesman for AENA confirmed the pilots had activated an alert as a result of an incident on board. The flight had landed safely at 9.23pm and the alert was deactivated 27 minutes later.

A spokesperson for Ryanair said on Friday: 'The crew of this flight from Tenerife to Santiago (5 May) requested police assistance upon landing at Santiago, after a passenger became disruptive in-flight, who was removed and detained by police. 

'We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police.'
