Man runs onto a UAE airport runway to catch plane to meet his fiancée

Published: Updated:

They say love has no boundaries, and one Indian man living in the UAE has taken his love for his fiancée to new heights.

The 26-year-old civil engineer attempted to sneak onto a plane after he broke into the Sharjah Airport runway, reported Khaleej Times on Thursday.

He was arrested minutes after a luggage loader noticed him attempting to sneak in.

The man in question said to the newspaper that his actions were an act of love. He was quoted saying: “I want to say I'm a free man and our life is ours. I did this act because I wanted to travel back to India to meet my fiancée, whatever the price I have to pay.”

During his trial, it was learned that the man’s passport was being held by his employer, who happened to be a relative, which is why he did not purchase a ticket.

The engineer said he has no regrets for his actions and simply “cannot live without [his] fiancée.” He is yet to seek his parents’ blessings, he added.
