    Wrong air passenger bypasses Gatwick security

    An unauthorised passenger managed to board a Ryanair flight from London to Dublin last week after passing four separate security checks, despite not having a valid boarding card for the flight.

    Ryanair only detected the passenger after a manual headcount minutes before the aircraft doors were due to be closed for take-off.

    The flight, from London’s Gatwick airport last Sunday, was delayed for 25 minutes while Ryanair crew and ground staff tried to identify what had caused the discrepancy.

    Two of the security checks were operated by Gatwick airport security staff, the other two by Ryanair agents. All four checks required passengers to produce a valid boarding card. The passenger was asked to leave the aircraft when the discrepancy was identified and complied with the request.

    She was in possession of a boarding card for a Ryanair flight from Gatwick to Dublin later in the week, and was believed to have mistakenly thought she was booked on the flight in question.

    A Ryanair spokesman described the incident as ‘‘minor’’.

    No it's OK, we always had terrorists travelling the other way and they never blew anything up until they got here.
