Spanish holidaymaker shuts down Munich airport after 'pressing wrong door button'
28 August 2019 @ 09:19

A YOUNG Spanish tourist who lost his way at Munich airport and pressed the wrong button caused a security crisis that grounded 130 planes.

The returning holidaymaker, in his early 20s, was 'horrified' at the repercussions his mistake made, and to find himself under arrest.

He had just got off a flight from Bangkok after his break in Thailand and was due to catch a connecting flight via Lufthansa to Madrid from Germany's second-busiest airport.

But after popping to the toilet upon disembarking, the youth found the fellow passengers he had been following had already gone on ahead.

Not sure which way to go, he started walking, but was heading the wrong way down the passage.

And when he pressed a button to open a door that he thought led to the next stage of his trek to the boarding gate, he discovered too late that it was the back door to the one-way-only security checks.

On his trying to access a restricted area, alarms went off across the airport.
