The flight was due to arrival in Ibiza before a passenger was removed for bringing a blow-up doll on board.
A man was pulled off a passenger jet by French police in Toulouse on Friday after his behaviour onboard caused the service to be diverted.
Jet2 flight LS397 departed Belfast International airport at around 3.30pm with arrival at Ibiza Airport expected at 7.35pm - but passengers were delayed for a number of hours by the intoxicated flier.
The man, who has not been named, was reportedly "consuming alcohol illicitly" which led to him displaying "disgraceful" and "deplorable" behaviour onboard.
He has since been banned for life from flying with the low-cost airline.
Managing director for Jet2, Phil Ward apologised for the inconvenience to other passengers on the flight: "‘Fellow customers and families travelling for a well earned holiday should not be subjected to this sort of behaviour and we sincerely apologise to all the other customers on that flight.
"We will be taking further action in support of our crew to ensure the passenger is held accountable for his actions and indeed he has already received a lifetime ban from future Jet2.com flights."
