Incident: jet2 B733 at Manchester on Jul 24th 2012, little stowaway

A Boeing 737-300, registration G-CELG performing flight LS-791 from Manchester,EN (UK) to Rome Fiumicino (Italy), departed with an 11 year old boy in the passenger cabin, who had run away from home and was making his way to Rome without boarding pass, passport or other papers. Other passengers realised in flight that the boy was travelling alone and informed cabin crew. In consultation of flight crew with dispatch it was discovered the boy was travelling as stowaway. The aircraft continued to Rome for a safe landing, the boy was kept aboard while all other passengers disembarked.

The boy was returned to Manchester on board of the aircraft, that departed Rome as flight LS-792 with a delay of 2 hours as result of the boy's adventure and reached Manchester with a delay of 80 minutes, where the boy was handed back to his family.

Police confirmed the boy had separated from his mother while she was shopping and went to the airport to take his way to Rome,(Well shopping is boring bounce ) while his mother started a search for him. After the crew called dispatch, police was able to identify his whereabouts and inform his mother and after the aircraft's return reunite the family.

The airline confirmed the boy was travelling aboard their aircraft without proper papers after passing five security checks, where the lack of boarding pass and lack of travel documents went unnoticed. The relevant staff has been suspended pending investigation results.

Security What Security I travel alot on low cost airlines and have witnessed many times passengers sat on the wrong flights which can only be blamed on gate staff.
