Passengers arrested after flight diverts to Bermuda

Three passengers en-route to the Dominican Republic were arrested in Bermuda after their flight diverted to the Island.

According to a Police spokesman, at around 10pm on Friday a Sunwing aircraft travelling from Canada to the Dominican Republic landed in Bermuda after an incident on-board involving several passengers.

“The aircraft was met by police officers who liaised with the cabin crew,” the spokesman said. “Three passengers, a 54-year-old man, a 52-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were subsequently arrested, processed and released on police bail pending further inquiries.

“The crew and remaining passengers were accommodated at Bermuda hotels overnight. The aircraft was scheduled to resume its journey on Saturday.”
