The plane was taxiing to a runway at Dublin Airport when the man was accused of snapping the photos

A Flybe passenger was kicked off a plane shortly before take-off after he allegedly snapped photos of a flight attendant’s buttocks.

The man started taking photos with his mobile phone as the female cabin crew member delivered her pre-flight safety demonstration while the plane taxied to a runway.

When he was caught allegedly taking inappropriate pictures of her he was ordered off the Embraer E195 aircraft at Dublin Airport before it flew to Cardiff.

The man was asked to delete the photos from his smartphone, but he claimed he was unable to do so, a source told the Irish Independent.

The source, who was not identified by the newspaper, said: ‘Just before take-off, while staff were going through the safety demonstration, a worker claimed that a man was taking pictures of her.

Police were notified and the plane, which has a capacity for 118 passengers, returned to the terminal, where the man was removed.

The aircraft then made the 30-minute journey from Dublin to Cardiff.

The man was not arrested and it is believed no further action will be taken in relation to last Friday’s incident, the Irish Independent reported.

A Flybe spokeswoman told MailOnline Travel: ‘The safety and security of our passengers and crew is Flybe’s number one priority and, as such, we have a zero-tolerance policy with any form of on-board behaviour that might in any way compromise this.

‘Should such disruptive behaviour persist, those involved would be immediately reported to the police and the necessary action taken.’

In April, a passenger on board an IndiGo plane in India was charged after he allegedly recorded video of cabin crew members as they served drinks and snacks on board a flight from Kolkata to Mumbai.

The man continued to record the female employees after he was ordered to stop, said passengers.

Last October, a Turkey-bound flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a man from Ireland stripped naked and asked a Sun Express flight attendant for sex.

The man removed his clothes shortly after the plane left Dublin for Izmir and started to wave his penis around in front of horrified holidaymakers.

Crew tried to calm him down, but he reportedly became aggressive and started jumping on seats as he was cheered on by his friends, said fellow passengers.

The plane made an emergency landing at Nikola Tesla Airport in Serbian capital of Belgrade, where the man was escorted off the plane.
