An easyJet flight from Nice to Geneva was aborted while taxiing for take-off on Tuesday afternoon after the pilot noticed a person taking photographs of the aircraft.
The photographer turned out to be an airport employee who had a relative on the flight, the airline said later. Police carried out security checks on the aircraft before it was cleared for take-off two hours after its original time slot of 4:55 pm.
EasyJet apologised for any inconvenience to passengers. One passenger decided to take a later flight.
