A Wizz Air flight from Tel Aviv to London was forced to land in Belgrade after a passenger attacked the crew and attempted to open the emergency exit mid-air.
The plane departed on Monday with the passengers having to spend the night in the Serbian capital awaiting a replacement flight to Britain, Channel 12 reported on Tuesday.
“The company is dealing with the onward flight of all customers to London. The safety and security of passengers and crew are the company’s top priority. The company regrets the inconvenience caused by this unexpected incident,” said a Wizz Air statement.
Last week, a commercial flight from the Seychelles to Tel Aviv carrying 128 Israelis made an unscheduled landing in Saudi Arabia.
The passengers spent one night at an airport hotel in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah in Mecca Province before being flown back to Israel the following day.
