Emergency landing at Chania Airport due to drunken passenger - 2 January, 2016

An "extraordinary" landing happened at Chania airport in the afternoon of New Year's Day, when an aircraft of Easyjet, flight EZY8861, flying from London to Hurghada had a 27 years old passenger aboard who was so drunk that besides to himself he caused disruption to the flight.

The pilot landed the plane at 16:40 at Chania Airport to disembark the drunken young man, who was taken in by the police.

During this emergency landing, due to the quick descent into Chania, ice built up on the aircraft wings.

Unfortunately there is no de-icing equipment available at Chania Airport.

The aircraft had to stay overnight in Chania International Airport, due to the disruption earlier taking longer than anticipated and the lack of de-icing facilities.
