A Dutch tourist was arrested at Kos airport after he was caught smoking an electronic cigarette during a Transavia flight. The incident took place on the flight to the Greek island, a Transavia spokesman confirmed.

The 25-year-old was repeatedly warned to stop vaping: ”Smoking on board, including the use of electronic cigarettes, is prohibited ", emphasized a spokesperson. The crew reported the incident and the man was handed over to local authorities immediately after arrival. " This type of behavior endangers the safety of passengers ", said Transavia.

Cigarette smoking, including electronic cigarettes, has been banned on airplanes since the 1990s. This rule was implemented to prevent fire hazards. " The smoke alarm may go off. It is dangerous and therefore strictly prohibited ", added the Transavia spokesperson.

The incident on the flight to Kos is a rare occurrence. " Such reports are not common ", said the spokesperson. " Passengers are generally aware that smoking on board is not permitted. Our crew is trained to respond quickly and handle such situations . "

Smoking on board can lead to fines and criminal charges. In many countries, including Greece, violators can face fines of thousands of euros. It is not clear whether the Dutchman will have to pay such a large fine. Greek police in Kos were not available for comment.
