According to reports, an EasyJet spokesman confirmed police were called on Sunday following an incident on flight EZY481 "due to a passenger behaving disruptively onboard and refusing to wear their face covering". The spokesman stated that, according to EASA guidelines, all passengers are currently required to bring their own face covering for their flight which must be worn during boarding and onboard, except when eating or drinking.
"Passengers receive clear communications before they travel and via announcements onboard to ensure they are aware of this requirement for the health and safety of everyone onboard. "We will not tolerate disruptive behavior towards other passengers and crew," he added. #gainwithspikes
