RyanairA Ryanair passenger got in trouble after taking the emergency exit and waiting on the wing to leave a plane in Spain.

His flight from London had been delayed one hour on departure, and passengers were reportedly kept on board for 30 minutes at Malaga.

The man, reportedly a Polish national in his 50s, sat on the wing for some time before being talked back inside.

Speaking to the media one passenger said it was “surreal” when the man activated the emergency exit, announcing: “I’m going via the wing”.

But the media source also quoted another passenger, Raj Mistry, who said the man had been suffering from asthma and was struggling to breathe.

He was later arrested by airport security.

Video footage taken by another passenger shows the man setting his hand luggage down before perching on the wing’s edge as a number of people can be heard laughing in the background.

The unusual incident happened on flight FR8164 from Stansted to Malaga on New Year’s Day.

A spokesman for Ryanair called the event an “airport security breach”.

“Malaga airport police immediately arrested the passenger in question and since this was a breach of Spanish safety and security regulations, it is being dealt with by the Spanish authorities,” he said.
