A shocking incident occurred with a Ryanair passenger that was flying Ryanair from London to Valencia. Instead of the Spanish city, the airline mistakenly brought her to…Kyiv.
On October 18, 30-year-old Bulgarian Inka Fileva , who lives in London, had to fly from Great Britain to Valencia to visit her boyfriend. After passing all the security checks at London’s Stansted Airport, she somehow got not on a plane, but on a flight to Kiev. Ryanair employees did not notice that her boarding pass for on another flight.
I don’t understand how my ticket got scanned and passed and how I came here without a visa she told the Daily Star Online
Her Ryanair flight to Valencia departed from gate 44, she ended up going to gate 54 instead. Before getting on the plane, the staff scanned her boarding and let her on a flight to Kyiv.
hey checked my ticket a few times, I even asked on the plane what time I would arrive in Valencia, and they told me it’d be two hours and fifteen minutes long
Since it was a flight early in the morning, Inka, who works as a bartender, slept through the entire trip. When she landed she realised by the signs and the police that she wasn’t in Valencia.
I got so scared as the police started approaching me, no one spoke English and they kept asking for my passport (…) The weirdest thing is that I was travelling with my European ID but had my passport in my bag, so they just gave me a stamp and rushed me out
Not realizing how she found herself in a completely different country, the passenger went to the information point to ask for help. No one understood how she got to Ukraine and kept asking her the ticket to Kyiv.
I kept showing them the ticket to Valencia, they couldn’t understand how this happened
At the same time, the passenger praised the very polite staff of the Kiev airport, who contacted Ryanair and helped her get to Valencia – first by flight back to the UK, and then to Valencia.
