A violent incident on a Chilean national flight, at the northern airport of Antofagasta, left four people detained and at least six injured, the airline Latam and the Chilean General Directorate of Aeronautics reported on Wednesday, which will file complaints against the aggressors of officials. .

The Antofagasta Prosecutor's Office announced on Wednesday the opening of an investigation "to clarify the serious incidents that occurred" on a commercial plane on Monday that was preparing its departure from the northern region to Santiago.

Four adult passengers of Chilean nationality "were arrested after assaulting officials" of the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics of Chile (DGAC), who came to ask the four travelers to get off the flight, "producing an altercation between them."

The airline Latam reported that the passengers were disembarked for security reasons. The airline strongly condemned the aggressive behavior towards its collaborators, clients and public officials and indicated that it will file a criminal complaint in this regard.

Six DGAC officials were slightly injured in an event in which the Chilean police had to intervene, making the arrests and taking the people away as defendants, the prosecutor's office said.

Aeronáutica Civil categorically rejected the attacks suffered by its personnel "inside flight LA135 in Antofagasta" and announced that "they will take all the corresponding legal actions against the aggressors," he said Wednesday via Twitter.

The videos of the fight were disseminated profusely on social networks and the Chilean press on Wednesday and show a group of men with a violent attitude and apparently intoxicated at the moment the beatings began.
