An investigation has been launched after a passenger got on the wrong plane in Glasgow.

The holidaymaker was supposed to board an Easyjet flight from Glasgow to Faro, Portugal on Wednesday but ended up on a flight to Bristol.

Once they arrived in Bristol, the airline made arrangements for them to be flown to Faro.

Easyjet confirmed that they were now looking into the matter and were working with Glasgow Airport to determine how the passenger made it onto the wrong flight.

A spokesperson said: "We can confirm that a passenger boarded the incorrect aircraft at Glasgow Airport on Wednesday 10 May and travelled to Bristol.

"As soon as this was realised, it was arranged for them to fly from Bristol to Faro, their original destination.

"The passenger was looked after by our team throughout and escorted them to the aircraft.

“The safety and well-being of our passengers and crew is always easyJet’s number one priority.

"We are currently investigating with the airport and their special assistance provider, and our ground handler at Glasgow how the passenger boarded the wrong flight. 

“We would like to sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.” 

Glasgow Airport confirmed that they had been made aware of the situation.
