STOCKHOLM – Police say a commercial flight from Romania to Norway made an emergency landing in Swedish city of Malmo after a passenger tried to kick down the door to the cockpit.
Police said the man was arrested Tuesday upon landing in Malmo on suspicion of violating aviation laws by endangering passengers during a flight.
The Expressen newspaper said the passenger was subdued by other passengers aboard the Wizz Air flight from Bucharest to the Norwegian city of Torp. Police could not confirm those details.
Police spokesman Stephan Soderholm said there were no indications that the incident was terror-related. He said a second passenger was taken into custody in Malmo for drunkenness.
The plane landed safely and no injuries were reported.
