Footage showed the mystery traveller jumping off the jet bridge with two bags in his hands and sprinting across the edge of the runway to try to board the plane.
An airport spokesman said that, when he saw that he is going to miss the flight, he breached a range of security measures and despite the efforts of ground personnel to stop him, managed to run across the tarmac as the plane was preparing to taxi out to the runway.
He wasn’t arrested immediately but he was identified so his name could be passed to Guardia Civil officers in Madrid for them to take the appropriate action.
The pilot agreed to take him on board because he had a boarding pass. He was lucky that he was not mistaken to be a terrorist, which was easily possible because of all the terror attacks that are currently happening all over Europe. Madrid is currently on terror alert level 4.
A spokesman for Spanish Airports Authority AENA said the unnamed offender had broken a firm alarm in an apparent diversionary tactic.
