A Transavia plane that was flying from the Canary Islands to Amsterdam last Tuesday night was forced to divert to Faro Airport due to unpleasant strong odours coming from one of the passengers.

According to the Mirror, the man smelled “unbearably” bad to the point that some passengers vomited and fainted.
The tabloid’s report claimed the Boeing 737 Transavia flight from Gran Canaria in Spain to Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands “diverted to Faro in Portugal over the stench - after crew tried to quarantine the man in a toilet”.

Quoting “distressed” passengers, the piece claimed fellow travellers on the plane said “it seemed like he hadn’t bathed for weeks.”
A picture taken by one of the passengers appears to show medical personnel escorting the man from the airplane into a bus at Faro airport.
