Despite their pleas and complaints to the plane's crew, the man reportedly continued to fart.

As well as the two Dutchmen, police also escorted two young women off the plane, identified as Nora L., 25, and her unnamed sister, both from Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

A spokesman for Transavia Airlines later told local media that these passengers would not be accepted for future company travel. Apparently, the passenger kept breaking wind on board the 7-hour-10-minute flight from Dubai International to Schiphol, in Amsterdam, last weekend. However, when he refused to stop, a fight broke out.

The pilot then chose to divert to Vienna, Austria.

Transavia Airlines flight made the unscheduled stop in Austria after two Dutch men objected to a flatulent co-passenger. It was not clear whether the man from whom the farts had started had a medical problem that caused the farts.

According to The Mirror, a police spokesperson confirmed that "a passenger suffering from wind who was not attempting to restrain himself" was at the center of the matter.

A flight from Dubai to Amsterdam went down the toilet because one passenger would not stop farting. One girl, Nora L, said: "It was insane what happened, we had no idea who they were, we just had the misfortune to sit in the same raw with them".

There were no arrests as the passengers had not broken any Austrian laws but Transavia is refusing to carry them again. "All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up," Lacchab said to De Telegraph. She added that we did not even know the two men involved in the situation.

All four passengers were released from police custody without being charged.

A statement from the airline said Transvia were open to communication with the women but said that, "according to our crew there was a good reason for all four to get them offboard".
