Son Sant Joan de Mallorca Airport.

The person who forced the Air Arabia Maroc plane to land at Palma de Mallorca airport because he was unwell and who caused the island’s air traffic to be suspended for more than three and a half hours has been examined at the hospital and is in perfect condition and under police custody.

The man who was supposedly ill has been taken by ambulance to the Son Llàtzer hospital in Palma along with a person who was accompanying him on the plane. This companion has fled and the cause of the emergency landing has been immediately discharged and is in police custody.

Research sources have confirmed to the SER string that the main hypothesis with which they are working is that everything was planned to enter Spain irregularly.

The facts

A flight from Morocco bound for Turkey made an unforeseen stopover on the runways of Palma airport at 8.30 pm after notifying that a diabetic passenger was unwell and needed urgent medical attention.

On this scale, between 15 and 20 passengers on the plane have left the plane when the ambulance proceeded to evacuate the allegedly ill person and have fled through the airport runways, which has forced those responsible to stop all operations in compliance with security protocols.


Agents of the Civil Guard and private security in about twenty vehicles travel the tracks of Son Sant Joan to try to locate the escaped travelers, who, according to the hypothesis handled by the investigators, have abandoned the plane with the intention of entering the irregular shape in Spain.

The National Police has also mobilized numerous troops looking for passengers in the areas outside the fences that close the airport because they suspect that they may have left the compound.

Likewise, those responsible for security check the passenger list to try to determine how many are the escapees and rule out their presence on the runways as soon as possible so that the movement of aircraft can be resumed.
