More than 30 passengers with tickets could not board a Ryanair flight Poznan – Odesa on July 3, 2021. The airport administration believed that the passengers were just late for the flight, as Ukrinform wrote.
“We are still clearing the situation. But I can say in advance that these passengers did not arrive in time for the appropriate gate they were supposed to board,” a spokesman for Poznan-Lawica Airport Błażej Patryn said.
The spokesman added that the responsibility for the situation lies on Ryanair, although the airport administration is still investigating the incident in detail through CCTV footage.
The day before, a number of Polish media, including epoznan.pl, wrote that one of the pilots of the Poznan-Odesa flight did not allow more than 30 passengers to board the plane. He allegedly shouted the words ‘get away’ and ‘I am the king of the plane’. A spokesman for the airport did not confirm this information.
As it was reported earlier, at the beginning of the month the flight from Boryspil International Airport to Turkey was postponed because of absence of the permission from Turkey. The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba instructed the Consulate of Ukraine in Antalya to work with the Turkish authorities to resume flights.
