Airplane turns back to collect passenger who had to care for her mother in hospital

On a regional flight in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil, airline pilots Julio Grizze and André Christofoli made a very moving decision. Their plane was ready for take-off when they were contacted by ground staff who informed them that a delayed passenger needed to come aboard.


Touched by the story of this woman who was travelling to the hospital bedside of her mother, who was seriously ill, the pilots did not hesitate and turned the plane round, and taxied back to the boarding gate, so that the woman could come on board. The other passengers were informed of this situation over the loudspeaker and applauded the pilots’ decision.

Sensibilizados pela história da senhora, que se deslocava para cuidar da mãe internada em estado grave, os pilotos não tiveram dúvidas: retornaram a aeronave ao embarque e permitiram que a passageira entrasse. Os demais clientes foram informados da situação no alto-falante e aplaudiram a decisão dos pilotos.
