Because a pilot allegedly dislocated his shoulder in the cockpit during the flight, an Easyjet machine had to make an emergency landing. This is reported by the Daily Mail.
According to this, the Airbus 320 was traveling from Luton (England) to Agadir (Morocco) when it began to descend into Portuguese airspace. The crew informed the Fargo airport tower that an emergency had to be landed and that the captain was “unfit”. The plane landed 18 minutes later.
An Easyjet spokesperson confirmed the incident to the Daily Mail. He said: “Flight EZY2213 was hijacked on April 10 as the captain required medical attention. The first officer landed the aircraft safely, the captain was met by paramedics upon arrival.

Asked about the injury, the spokesperson mentioned medical secrecy. However, the newspaper claims to have learned that the pilot in the cockpit dislocated his shoulder. It is not known exactly how this happened. The tabloid quoted an unnamed pilot from another airline as saying, “Did he do any gym or fitness exercises?! That’s just weird.
Passengers on board would not have been informed that the captain was unable to fly the A320. Bad for passengers: Due to the diversion, the crew reached the maximum allowed flight time, so the travelers had to spend the night in Portugal. The next morning we continued to Morocco. Easyjet apologized for the inconvenience caused.
It is not known how many people were on board the plane. An Airbus 320 can carry up to 236 passengers.
