A woman was removed from a Glasgow flight before take-off due to an 'incident'.

The TUI flight TOM684 from Glasgow to Cancun had a delayed departure on Wednesday, May 29 due to an alleged incident involving 'disruptive' passengers. 

Cops were called to Glasgow Airport after receiving a report that a 37-year-old man had been assaulted. 

A 36-year-old woman was arrested and charged in connection and released on an undertaking to appear in court. 

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 12.40pm on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, we were made aware of a passenger causing a disturbance on a flight at Glasgow Airport where a 37-year-old man was assaulted.

“A 36-year-old woman has been arrested in connection. She was released on an undertaking to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court at a later date.

“A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”

TUI confirmed that passengers had been removed from the aircraft and that the flight took off at around 12.28pm. 

They apologised to customers for the delay to their holiday. 

A spokesperson for TUI UK and Ireland said: "We’d like to apologise to customers on TOM684 from Glasgow to Cancun, who had a delayed departure due to disruptive passengers on board the flight.

"Our goal is to ensure customers have the best possible flight experience, so this is not the way we wanted their holiday to start.​

"The safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and any unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated. The customers involved were offloaded from the aircraft and the flight was able to continue its journey.

"The flight departed Glasgow for Cancun at 12:28pm, Wednesday May 29."​

A spokesperson for Glasgow Airport said: “We are aware of the incident which took place yesterday during the boarding of TUI’s service to Cancun.
