Two people were arrested on Friday because of a brawl during a KLM flight from Schiphol to Ibiza. Some passengers refused to wear a mask, and arguments arose about this.
The brawl broke out on flight KL1495 on Friday morning. A KLM spokesman confirmed the incident on Sunday with NU.nl. The two arrested persons do not have Dutch nationality.
According to KLM, the passengers had drunk too much and bothered other occupants and cabin crew both verbally and physically. “The two unruly people were then stopped by our cabin crew, together with other passengers,” said KLM.
Images show that several occupants of the device get into a fight. It can also be seen that some other passengers do not wear a mask, while this is mandatory on KLM flights.
Flight safety is not at stake
The spokesman emphasizes that flight safety was not at issue and that the captain of the aircraft had decided to complete the flight to Ibiza.
After the landing, the Spanish authorities were able to arrest the two passengers. It is not known what will happen to them.
