A Ryanair plane was taken out of service on Thursday after two passengers complained of insect bites after their flight.

Reuters reports that the passengers, who travelled from Billund, Denmark to Ciampino, Italy, made a complaint while they were waiting in the terminal to collect their luggage.

Several Italian news outlets reported that doctors diagnosed tick bites and contacted pest control.

As a result, the aircraft was taken out of service overnight so that it could be disinfected. It was returned to service the following day.

A spokesperson for Ryanair said: "As the source of these alleged insect bites was unknown, Ryanair was happy to disinfect the aircraft overnight before returning it to service on Friday September 7."
