paris athens aegean flight

A passenger on an Aegean flight from Paris to Athens caused chaos after he threatened, with Qur'an in hand, to kill everyone on the plane.

As told by a passenger of Aegean flight A3613 to Proto Thema, which departed from the “Charles de Gaulle” airport of the French capital and landed around 22:30 at Eleftherios Venizelos in Athens, about ten minutes after the plane took off, one of the passengers started reciting verses from the Qur'an.

For security reasons, the crew did not serve food to prevent the man from using the cutlery. At the same time, the passengers who were sitting near him were transferred to the first class and to the seats of the flight attendants, since he was hitting their seats.

Some of the passengers were even ready to hold him, in case he was dangerously close to the exits.

At one point the passenger, visibly enraged, took out the Qur'an and began shouting that he was going to blow up the plane and that Allah would punish them all.

The pilot, crew and the chief flight attendant, as seen in the video, handled the incident flawlessly and professionally, while the Athens control tower was informed.

When the Airbus A321 aircraft landed – without any delay, according to the schedule – at “Eleftherios Venizelos”, airport in Athens, men of the Hellenic Police, who had been alerted and were at the scene, brought the man in.

According to the testimony, the professionalism of the Aegean crew members was the one that contributed to not creating a panic and that the flight finally went smoothly to its final destination.
