The flight left Amsterdam to Ibiza on Friday. Upon arrival to the Spanish island, the two passengers were detained by Spanish authorities for causing harm and danger to fellow passengers by refusing to wear face masks in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Before being arrested, the two men were prevented from leaving the plane by other passenger who helped the crew until security personnel arrived.
