The police are called on the Ryanair aircraft in the news of a "disturbing passenger" about Manchester for the flight to Gran Canaria
- The pilot asked for assistance while the flight was on course
- The Guardia Civil of the Spanish island boarded the plane when it landed
- It is not yet clear what happened on the flight that landed last night
- It comes after a report that identifies the British as the passengers with the worst behavior
The police were called on a Ryanair plane from Manchester after it landed in Gran Canaria to look after an annoying passenger.
The pilot asked for assistance while flight FR3803 was on course.
The Guardia Civil is assumed to have boarded the plane when it landed just before 11:00 pm local time.
A "disruptive passenger" on a flight from Manchester to Gran Canaria last night saw the police meet when they arrived
The Spanish air traffic controllers have identified the flight, stating: "The flight from Manchester to Gran Canaria required the presence of the police at the time of landing due to a disturbing passenger on board".
It was not immediately clear what had happened on board.
The normal procedure involves problematic passengers being dragged out of the plane when they land and identified, so that a report can be sent to the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency to decide the fine level. They are rarely formally arrested.
It comes after the figures released by the Spanish Agency for Aviation Security and Safety in June, which showed that there are more incidents involving British people hit with fines for bad behavior on board aircraft than any other nationality .
The Madrid-based agency, charged with fining problematic passengers who were identified by police at Spanish airports, was informed of last year's accidents involving 862 passengers.
Great Britain with 264 got the gold medal for bad behavior in front of Spain in 203 and third place in Germany – 61.
Civil guards on the Spanish island (pictured) were boarded on the plane when it landed just before 11:00 pm local time.
The next on the list of shame was Italy on the 32nd, and Ireland on the 30th followed by France – 25.
The agency, the national aviation agency for Spain and part of the country's Development Ministry, also revealed that it had fined 729 people just over £ 517,000 between 2017 and the end of March of this year.
The British have passed the same list of shame for 2017.
A behavior deemed "inappropriate" on board an aircraft can result in fines of up to £ 4,456, although problematic passengers are also affected by the cost of flight diversions due to their recklessness or violence.
Already this year British holidaymakers have been involved in a series of incidents aboard planes bound for Spain, which have led many to be dragged away by the police.
On June 14th, Civil Guard officers were called to an easyJet flight from London Stansted when it landed in Ibiza after a group of tourists caused problems.
Passengers on the plane said that a man who was expelled refused to give his name and shouted "p *** y" to a woman who complained about him.
The incident occurred on board the easyJet flight EZY3044 from London Stansted to Ibiza.
On May 25, a group of drunken Britons on their way to Benidorm were filmed using a funnel-based beer on a Ryanair plane – with the apparent encouragement of an air hostess.
The men treated the plane like a disco, while in turn they filmed themselves on beer in incredible scenes on board the early morning flight from London Stansted to Alicante.
A boy was filmed lying on his back in the corridor while his drunk mates poured the contents of two cans of beer into the funnel at the top of the plastic tube he had inserted into his mouth and roared with laughter when he poured on he.
Incredibly, an air hostess who seemed to be trying to calm the men seemed to encourage them as one of the drunks pleaded with her: "Can you hold it up?"
He seemed to say "OK" in broken English before disappearing from the camera.

The police were not called on the plane when it landed at Alicante Airport.
Two days later, on May 27th, the Mallorcan police were called to transport a group of drunken Brits from a Jet2 plane after landing at Palma Airport in Edinburgh.
A Jet2 spokesman later said: "Due to the disruptive behavior of several passengers on our flight from Edinburgh to Palma, we made the decision to call the Guardia Civil in Mallorca to see the disembarking of those messy travelers involved.
"As a family-friendly airline, we will not tolerate inappropriate behavior towards our customers and staff. We are currently cooperating with the competent authorities in Spain."
Spain is the main destination for British tourists, with around 18 million people from the United Kingdom visiting the country each year.
