« Back issues important travel advice regarding passengers medication

20th March 2006

A recent flight from Spain to Leeds Bradford was diverted temporarily to Bournemouth after a woman who had packed her medication in the plane's hold suffered chest pains. Luckily our cabin crew were able to use their extensive training to ensure the comfort of the passenger until our aircraft diverted to the closest airport. The passenger was taken to a local hospital and all at wish her a speedy recovery. The further 126 travellers on board were then flown to Leeds Bradford as originally planned.

This is however a timely reminder that all passengers should keep essential medication in their hand baggage and not check it in to the aircraft hold. We also recommend that a doctors note accompanies all medication.

Aircraft diversions cost HUGE amounts of money, for which under our terms and conditions, our passengers are liable. It always pays to buy travel insurance.
