A woman has been charged with multiple offences after reports of a disturbance on a flight which lead to an emergency landing this summer.

Chloe Haines, 26, of Station Road in Loudwater, High Wycombe, Berkshire, has been charged with one count of assault and one count of recklessly or negligently acting in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft or persons inside.

She will appear at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, October 29.

Ms Haines was onboard a Jet2 flight from Dalaman, Turkey, when it was redirected to Stansted Airport on the evening of Saturday, June 22.

It is believed that the 25-year-old attempted to open the plane doors during flight, resulting in her being restrained by staff and passengers.

The incident caused RAF jets that were called to the incident to create a sonic boom which was heard by residents across Epping Forest, Harlow, Chelmsford, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.

Essex Police also reported that they had received 202 phone calls from across the county in one hour following the explosive sound at around 6.40pm.

Prior to her trial, Ms Haines has already been awarded a £85,000 fine and a lifetime ban from Jet2.
