MOSCOW, February 10 (RIA Novosti) - A probe is underway to find out how a 12-year-old boy managed to sneak into the international departures zone of the Brussels airport and board a plane to Spain without a ticket, Belgium’s RTBF broadcaster said on Saturday.
The boy, whose name was not disclosed, was spotted by a police officer in the airport of the southern Spanish city of Malaga on Saturday morning. When asked where his parents were, the child answered in French that they were registering for a flight.
It turned out, however, that the boy arrived to Malaga onboard a Jet Air flight without a boarding pass or ID.
The air carrier and security services of the airport are studying CCTV cameras footage in an attempt to find out how the child managed to pass a security check and board the plane, because minors are not allowed to travel without being accompanied by an adult.
“There are many question marks in this case. If this child arrived to Malaga by taking one of our flights, we should know how he got there. If there was an error, it is important to know where it occurred,” RTBF quoted Jet Air spokesperson Florence Bruyere as saying.
The child was declared missing by his parents on Thursday evening. The reason why the boy had suddenly decided to travel to Spain without informing his parents is also unknown.
