London – A man who missed his flight at Dublin Airport has been arrested for running after the plane on the tarmac.
Witnesses say a man who appeared to be in his 20s broke through a door and ran toward the Ryanair plane, which was about to take off for Amsterdam.
The airport said in a statement that a man became “agitated” after he and a woman arrived at the gate too late for their flight. It said the man “broke through a door and made his way onto the apron, trying to flag the aircraft down.”
Irish police said they were called to the airport at about 7 a.m. (0600GMT) Thursday.
They said the man was taken to a Dublin police station.
