A Dublin-bound Ryanair flight made an unscheduled landing in Italy after a passenger became ill.
The flight departed from Malta yesterday and was diverted to Palermo in Italy in order for the passenger to seek medical attention.
A Ryanair spokesman confirmed: “A Ryanair flight from Malta to Dublin diverted into Palermo after a passenger became ill onboard.
“On arrival in Palermo, the passenger disembarked and was assisted by local medical services.”
The flight then continued on its original route to Dublin and arrived safely.
