Passenger was taken off Ryanair plane just before take-off after he received a text message saying he hasted positive for coronavirus.

The man was due to fly from London Stansted to Pisa in Italy on Wednesday,  before he received the notification and was “immediately offloaded” the flight.

Ryanair said in a statement, “The passenger and his travel companion were immediately offloaded and taken to a Stansted Airport isolation area where they were assisted by local public health authorities.

“Since this passenger and his companion had complied fully with Ryanair health regulations, they were both wearing masks at all times at Stansted Airport and for the very short period (less than 10 mins) they were seated on the aircraft prior to departure.

“There was little if any risk of COVID-19 transmission to other passengers or crew members as all of whom were also wearing face masks at all times.

“The aircraft departed for Pisa following a delay of 1hr 20 mins to allow for the empty seats and overhead cabin bins to be disinfected to comply with all UK health authority guidance. Ryanair apologises to all passengers for this short delay.”
