Passenger falls ill on plane to UK from Paris - Flybe says

LONDON, Aug 9 (Reuters) - A passenger fell ill on a flight to Britain from France on Friday and public health authorities collected contact details from all 107 passengers on board so they are traceable, Flybe said.

The passenger fell sick on Flybe flight BE3122 Paris to the northern English city of Manchester.

“As a precautionary measure on arrival in Manchester and following a passenger on the above flight falling sick, it has worked closely with the Public Health England to collect the full contact details from all 107 passengers on board,” Flybe said.

“This would allow them to be fully traceable if, in what would be a very rare instance, they might need to be uniquely alerted by the authority at some point in the future.”

The BBC said the plane had been put “in quarantine” after a woman fell ill. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge; editing by Michael Holden)
