11-Year-Old Boy Gets to Italy Without Passport
Manchester Airport launched an urgent investigation Wednesday after an 11-year-old boy managed to slip through security and fly to Rome without a passport or ticket.
Liam Corcoran walked through security checks without showing any documentation and successfully boarded a Jet2.com flight to the Italian capital on Tuesday, the airport in north-west England admitted.
He was scanned by security staff but they did not notice his lack of a passport and boarding pass as he mingled with a family boarding the plane, the Manchester Evening News reported.
Passengers noticed halfway through the flight that the boy was alone and alerted the cabin crew.
“This extremely serious matter is now being urgently investigated by officials from the airport and airline,” an airport spokesman said.
“It is clear that documentation has not been checked correctly at security and the boarding gate. The boy went through full security screening so the safety of passengers and the aircraft was never compromised.”
