Ryanair flight Liverpool-Alicante declares mid-air emergency

Ryanair flight Liverpool-Alicante declares mid-air emergency

A Ryanair flight from Liverpool declared a mid-air emergency after a passenger fell ill.

The plane, flight number FR9886, was on its way to Alicante but declared the emergency while it was flying over Spain.

Online flight tracker site Flightradar24 showed the plane was been diverted to Bordeaux in southern France.

The in-flight alert was the general emergency number 7700.

A Ryanair spokesman said: "This flight from Liverpool to Alicante diverted to Bordeaux after a customer became ill on board.

"The crew called ahead to request medical assistance, the aircraft landed normally and the customer disembarked and was met by medics for further treatment.

"The aircraft departed to Alicante shortly afterwards and Ryanair apologised to customers for the short delay to their flight.”

The flight left Liverpool at 6.45am. It comes just three weeks after another Ryanair flight from Liverpool to Alicante was forced to make an emergency landing in Limoges, central France, so two drunk passengers could be arrested.

A similar emergency has been declared on a Germanwings flight from Dusseldorf in Germany, and that has also been diverted to Bordeaux.
