An EasyJet company plane, which was traveling EZY 6938, made an emergency landing at Edinburgh Airport, Scotland, after the pilot of the plane felt unwell, went into the bathroom and could no longer continue with the flight.
On June 12 at dawn, the aircraft took off from Heraklion, the capital of the Greek island of Crete, and was heading to Edinburgh. When the pilot began to feel unwell, the co-pilot was forced to make an emergency landing and asked the airport of the Scottish city to initiate the protocols. The passengers informed the The Scottish Sun that the pilot remained in the bathroom sick and they did not realize that he came out at some point.
The EasyJet company confirmed to the media that, indeed, the plane had landed at 1:20 am in an accelerated process, which was in charge of the first officer, the name given to the co-pilot on commercial flights. A passenger who did not want to be identified stated that when they got off the plane, the co-pilot said they were on duty for 13 hours, which could mean that fatigue was responsible for the pilot feeling bad.
For its part, EasyJet stated that paramedics met the captain upon arrival and that the safety and well-being of passengers and crew is their top priority.
