The UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) denied Wednesday the news of what is being circulated about an attempt to hijack a plane belonging to the national carrier flydubai in Iranian airspace, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported.

According to the news agency, Saif Al Suwaidi, Director General of the GCAA, emphasized that flight No. FZ301, which was heading from Dubai to Kabul, returned to Dubai and all the passengers disembarked the plane and left Dubai International Airport at 08:31 am, IRNA reported.

''The incident happened as a result of a behavior of one of the passengers who was detained by authorities upon the return of the plane to the airport,'' WAM quoted the official as saying.
