An easyJet flight was delayed after it was discovered that a passenger managed to get on the wrong plane at Liverpool airport, sparking questions about security.
The man was booked to fly to Belfast but boarded a flight to Jersey at John Lennon Airport at 7.40am Monday.
Both easyJet and Liverpool John Lennon Airport said they are investigating the major security breach.
One man on the Jersey plane posted about the incident on social media and called the security ‘pathetic’, “Because the boarding pass scanners at Gate 7 of Liverpool airport don’t work the staff had to manually type in each barcode.
“So, we were all told to get off as a precaution in case he left anything behind.”
The Belfast flight was nearly ten minutes late to Jersey after the 30-minute delay.
“easyJet works closely with all of our airports to ensure the safety and security of all passengers.” Said an easyJet spokesman
“We are currently investigating how the passenger was able to board the wrong flight to Jersey flight rather than their flight to Belfast. As soon as the mistake was realised onboard before departure, it was arranged for the passenger to board their correct flight.”
