Late Passenger Chases Plane On Tarmac

Footage of a man who missed his flight trying to chase the stationed plane by running on the tarmac

On Saturday, the 6th of August, a Ryanair passenger ran across the tarmac of Madrid-Barajas Airport to catch his plane bound for the Canary Islands in Spain.

The passenger's name has not been released but can be seen wearing a blue t-shirt and carrying two pieces of luggage as he attempts to catch his plane.

The man's first turn of action was to make it out of the terminal undetected by security, worryingly, he successfully evaded detection from security officials.

The Ryanair passenger then ran to the open gangway and climbed down to the tarmac where he is seen spotted trying to alert a baggage handler of his situation but the baggage handler seems ignorant of the man.

The late passenger then makes a mad beeline sprint towards his leaving plane. Cargo loaders eventually stopped him before he made it to his stationed plane but the strangest part of the story is that they eventually let him on to his Ryanair flight.

When the plane landed in Gran Canaria, an island of the Canary Islands he was stopped and detained by airport police, he has since been released and not charged for the incident.

The video was uploaded to Madrid Airport Workers Union's Facebook page called, CC.OO. Ryanair and Lesma Handling, it was posted with a message criticizing the security at the airport, stating, "This particular passenger was missing a Ryanair's flight and, unbelievably, skipped several security protocols established by AENA in their airports. We're talking about level 4 security protocols! Not even with all those protocols we can feel safe".

The Madrid Airport Police are currently investigating the incident further.
