Destination lost: Airline pilot confuses passengers welcoming them to MOSCOW after landing in KIEV (VIDEO) Passengers on a flight to Kiev, Ukraine were monetarily startled by the announcement that they had arrived at their destination – Moscow. The pilot of the aircraft quickly apologized for the embarrassing slip-up.
A Wizzair flight from London’s Luton airport to the Ukrainian capital took a humorous turn after the airplane had safely landed in Kiev.
“Wizzair is delighted to welcome you to Moscow,” the airliner’s pilot bellowed over the intercom as the plane drove to the arrival gate.
In a short video that recorded the unexpected announcement, passengers can be heard laughing in reaction to the pilot’s error.
“My apologies,” he said after a brief pause. “Wizzair is delighted to welcome you to Kiev.”
According to the YouTube channel that uploaded the video, at least a few passengers had woken up from a nap just moments before the announcement was made – causing temporary panic that they somehow got on the wrong flight.
“They strongly believed that they boarded the wrong airplane and ended up at the wrong city. They told me that you should see our faces,” the video description explained.
