Officials in hazmat suits remove passenger from plane after positive coronavirus test


LONDON – Ryanair says a passenger was taken off a plane in London after receiving a text message informing him that he had tested positive for coronavirus. Authorities in hazmat suits boarded the plane on Wednesday evening and took the passenger and his companion off the plane to London’s Stansted Airport before their seats and luggage compartments are not disinfected.

The flight from London to Pisa, Italy was delayed by an hour and 20 minutes.

Ryanair says both passengers wore masks and were on the plane for a short time. They were sent to an isolation area and put in contact with authorities at Public Health England.

The airline says “there was little or no risk of transmission of the C19 to other passengers or crew – all of whom also wore face masks at all times. “
