Brawl breaks out on Ibiza flight after passengers refuse to wear masks

A holiday trip from Amsterdam to Ibiza turned into a flight from hell as two passengers – one shirtless — who refused to wear face masks got into a brawl with fellow fliers before being restrained, according to a report.

Video posted on Instagram by @michighclub captured the fracas aboard the KLM Boeing 737, which took off from the Netherlands on Friday, the UK’s Independent reported.

“Panic and violent brawl!,” the user wrote. “Unruly English passenger on board KLM flight to Ibiza, he had been drinking Gregus vodka. They refused to wear facemasks. 2 arrests were made.”

Several people are heard shouting, “Stop now! There are kids over here!”

The footage shows several passengers – some not wearing face masks – attacking the shirtless, tattooed man with a bloody nose who is then restrained on the floor with his arms behind his back.

The other passenger who refused to wear a mask also was restrained. Both men were later arrested by Spanish police in Ibiza, the news outlet reported.

“Two unruly passengers refused to wear their face masks, and they were bothering their fellow passengers physically and verbally,” an airline rep told the Independent.

“The pilot informed the local authorities and upon arrival, both passengers were arrested. The flight safety was not compromised during the flight.”

KLM — which requires face masks to be worn on its flights — said passengers had been checked for masks upon boarding and that flight attendants also issued reminders, the news outlet reported.
