A couple at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport were about to board their plane bound for Belgium when they were stopped by Ryanair staff. The two were advised that they had to purchase a separate flight ticket for the baby they were bringing with them, which they had not done before. Then the unbelievable happened for the bystanders, as “The Times of Israel” summarizes: The parents are said to have simply put the baby on the check-in counter and then rushed in the direction of the aircraft door, at least for two to get into the machine .

However, the airport staff held the two back again, as reported by the French broadcaster TF1 Info. You should pick up your baby immediately. The police, who had been alerted in the meantime, had also arrived quickly to arrest both and question them. “All employees were in shock. We’ve never seen anything like it. We couldn’t believe our eyes,” quoted TF1 Info from a Ryanair message.

However, the “Jerusalem Post” describes a somewhat different course of events at Tel Aviv Airport. It refers to information from the Israeli airport authority. Accordingly, the couple arrived at the terminal too late and the check-in counter was already closed. The couple didn’t accept not being taken anymore, dropped the baby at the check-in counter and went to look for security personnel. The security forces should have achieved that they were all allowed to board the plane together.

The responsible authorities in Tel Aviv have not yet responded to an inquiry from the star. However, in any case, the parents moved away from their baby. It has not yet been announced whether all three will then go on the planned trip together.
