North Cyprus News – Ercan to Ankara Plane Hijack Foiled

Passengers on board a flight from the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus to the Turkish capital Ankara were given a scare this morning after a would-be hijacker claimed to have a bomb.

The incident took place on a Anadolu Jet flight that left the TRNC’s Ercan airport at 06:45 (04:45 GMT) for Ankara.

Shortly after departure, one passenger locked himself in the toilet and demanded that the plane be taken to Istanbul, claiming that he had a bomb.

The would-be hijacker was then arrested upon landing at Ankara’s Esenboga airport.

  • “Oh Mr Porter what shall I do
  • I want to go to Instanbul
  • they’re taking me to Ankara,
  • Get me back to Ercan
  • As quickly as you can,
  • Oh Mr Pilot what a silly boy I am”

A little poetic licence used , what do you mean, I am not taking a serious incident seriously…are you?
