TALLINN - Last week, an aircraft pilot was forced to abort takeoff at Tallinn Airport due to a passenger causing disturbance on board.

At 10:27 p.m., it was reported from Tallinn Airport that a flight scheduled to depart for Barcelona at 10:45 p.m. had a problematic passenger on board, necessitating police intervention. Consequently, the plane turned back from the taxiway, spokespeople for the North Prefecture told BNS.

Officials from the Tallinn border point boarded the plane, where the captain demanded the removal of a French citizen, born in 1987. The woman was accompanied by her three minor children.

Border point officials escorted the woman and her three children off the plane. The woman was initially upset but later calmed down. She and her children were then taken to the public area of the airport. Emergency services were called for the woman, who was given a sedative. Afterwards, she began seeking alternative arrangements to return home.
