LONDON (Reuters) - Over 100 passengers who were kept on a plane that landed at Manchester airport in northern England on Friday after a woman had fallen ill on the flight have been given the all-clear to disembark, airline Flybe said.
Earlier, Flybe said it was working closely with Public Health England to collect contact details from the passengers to allow them to be traced if needed.
The passenger had fallen ill on Flybe flight BE3122 from Paris to Manchester but no details of her ailment have been released.
“Flybe can confirm that all 106 passengers asked to remain on board the above flight upon arrival into Manchester this morning were given the all-clear to disembark without further restriction and have since done so,” the airline said.
“The aircraft, following a deep clean, has also been given the all-clear by the authorities to return back into service as soon as this is completed.”
