Ryanair passengers were shocked when a fellow passenger exited the plane through the emergency door above the wing following a delay in his flight.
The man grew impatient when sitting on the tarmac and ended up sitting on the wing of flight FR8164 with his hand luggage at Malaga airport.
The man was then talked into coming back on board by ground staff where he was held before being arrested by Spanish authorities.
He was reportedly frustrated that the plane had been delayed by an hour when leaving London Stansted on New Year's day, and then had to wait another half hour on the tarmac upon arrival in Malaga.
Another passenger on the flight, Fernando Del Valle Villalobos told Mail Online: “This man decided he wasn’t going to wait any longer.
“He activated the emergency door and left, saying: ‘I’m going via the wing’. It was surreal.”
Del Valle Villalobos also said: “He was sat on the wing for quite a while until the crew managed to get him back inside.”
A spokesman for Ryanair said: “This airport security breach occurred after landing in Malaga airport on 1 January. Malaga airport police immediately arrested the passenger in question and since this was a breach of Spanish safety and security regulations, it is being dealt with by the Spanish authorities.”
