AN urgent investigation has been launched after a passenger managed to pass through multiple airport security checks to board a Ryanair flight despite his ticket being booked for a flight one month later.
The security breach at Bournemouth was only discovered after a row erupted on the aircraft due to fly to Girona in Spain on September 6 when the man argued with a woman he believed to be in his designated seat.
Cabin crew realised an error had been made upon inspecting the man’s ticket which was indeed for a flight to Girona but not until one month later on October 6.
Now questions have been raised regarding the level of security at the airport after the man, who mistakenly arrived an entire month early, was able to pass through check-in and all security checks before arriving onto the plane without a valid ticket.
Ryanair has said that they have “asked our gate agent to ensure it does not recur.”
