Two drunk British passengers were filmed in the fight after refusing to wear face coverings
During the clip, which was posted on Instagram by user Michighclub, other travellers are seen rushing to break up the fight which seems to be between a topless man and another passenger.
One man is heard shouting “There are kids here!” as pandemonium erupts.
And at the end of the video, the man is seen being pinned to the floor before the plane lands.
According to The Independent, both men were later arrested by Spanish police on arrival in Ibiza after the pilot informed local authorities.
A spokesperson for the airline said: “Two unruly passengers refused to wear their face masks and they were bothering their fellow passengers physically and verbally.
“The pilot informed the local authorities and upon arrival, both passengers were arrested. The flight safety was not compromised during the flight.”
In the caption of the video, Instagram user Michighclub claimed that the passenger involved had been drinking vodka and had refused to wear a face mask.
Airline KLM has strict guidance on face coverings – with passengers required to wear one until at least August 31.
The only exceptions to the rule are for those under the age of 10 or those who cannot wear them for medical reasons.
The company wrote on its website: “Without face covering, we cannot allow you to board. We strongly advise you wear a mask at the rest of the airport as well.”
Masks are also mandatory at all airports in the Netherlands as part of coronavirus restrictions.
