Canadian officials have recognized the man who was on a no-fly list and the one who had evoked the authorities to avert the flight to Montreal.
The accused person has been distinguished as Abdirahman Ali Gaal and the Immigration Department has confirmed that he would be subject to hearing this week on Wednesday. He was taken into custody but the details of his arrest would be made into public during the hearing process, confirmed a spokesman from the Immigration Department.
It has been affirmed by the Canada Border Services Agency that the man was present on the no-fly list of the United States.
According to the U.S. officials, the Paris-Mexico City flight declined access to American airspace. The decline happened after a man applauded in an outstanding warrant was accounted aboard. The plane was geared with 150 travelers and left Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport in morning hours, at 4:31 a.m.
Although Transportation Security Administration have not acquainted whether any passenger is present on the government watch list or not, but reports point out that the man was on a U.S. no-fly list. The accused was immediately barred from the flight and was taken into custody at that time.
This arrest was followed by the screening of other passengers present on the flight as they were later allowed to re-board the place after it was paused in Montreal.
