Man detained over alleged Spanish holiday airport arson attack

A man was arrested for an alleged arson attack at a Spanish airport popular with visitors from the UK.

After a fire last Friday afternoon, he was arrested by police officers in Palma de Mallorca.

The fire started in the airport parking garage and four vehicles were gutted.

Shortly after 1.30 p.m., flames were discovered by airport employees and emergency services ran to the scene.

One man was seen suspicious and initially refused to give his details to the police. When discovered as a search officer, he allegedly discovered lighters and a bottle of butane.

He was arrested after a fight and charged with arson.

No flights were affected, although the incident has reportedly caused significant disruption.

Palma de Mallorca Airport is one of the busiest in Spain and was used by 29.7 million passengers in 2019.

Ryanair, easyJet and Jet2 are among the airlines that operate from the airport, although most flights from the UK have been suspended for the winter.
