An ArkeFly flight carrying 235 people from Amsterdam to Aruba in the Caribbean was forced to divert to Ireland on Wednesday after an unruly Dutch passenger made bomb threats during the flight.

ArkeFly said Flight 361 landed at Shannon Airport, where the man was handed over to authorities. There were 224 passengers and 11 crew aboard the Boeing 767.

Irish police identified the man as a 44-year-old Dutch national and said he was in custody.

“He came across as a very unstable and aggressive passenger during the flight and he mentioned several times that he had planted a bomb in the airplane,” an ArkeFly spokeswoman said.

There was no indication he had attempted to set off any sort of device during the flight, she said.
