Passengers on easyJet Flight 3025 ended up in a different country due to extreme weather conditions.
One traveller described it as a ‘nightmare’ journey after the plane made three attempts to land in Dubrovnik, before diverting.
The flight departed London Stansted just after 6am this morning, but five hours later passengers still hadn’t made it to their destination.
Several people on board were vomiting as the aircraft battled severe winds at the Croatian airport.
After a third attempt to land, the pilots were forced to abort their mission.
The flight diverted to Bari Airport in Italy so that it could refuel.Related articles
