In a statement today, the airline management wishes to make it clear that there was no hijacking or attempted hijacking as reported by the media.
However, it was reported that a male adult passenger on board the Singapore flight inflated a lifejacket in the aircraft, drawing attention from the crew and the passengers.
The cabin crew attended to the situation and resolved it in a controlled manner.
“At no time was the safety of the flight or its passengers and crew at risk. The passenger showed no signs of aggression,” the airline stated.
