England’s low-cost airlines has made a huge statement to a passenger who indecently exposed himself on a flight to Spain by banning him for life from any of the company’s airplanes, setting the precedent for similar situations in the future.

According to the Lincolnshire Echo, a 22-year-old man from Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England, reportedly exposed himself to flight attendants during a flight from East Midlands Airport in Leicestershire to Majorca, Spain.

The man was on vacation with his friends and the plane was full of other passengers when the alleged incident took place.

After the plane landed at its destination, the incident was reported to the authorities and charges could eventually be brought against the passenger for indecent exposure. Regardless of how the police handle the situation, did not allow the passenger on the return flight to England and has officially banned him from flying with the company ever again. CEO Steve Heapy released a statement to the media about the incident and how his company is outraged:

“We carry millions of families every year so this disgusting behavior will not be tolerated. It is totally unacceptable. We pride ourselves on giving our customers a friendly and relaxing flight experience so we will take action against anyone who causes offence and disruption to our crew and passengers.”

There have also been several other incidents involving indecent exposure on planes in England recently. One of the most recent came at the end of March, when a 46-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly being drunk on an aircraft after she indecently exposed herself.
