East Midlands Airport said three other flights were diverted to Birmingham after the precautionary evacuation of an aircraft operated by low fare airline Jet2 on Wednesday night.
A spokeswoman for Jet2 confirmed its service from Ibiza to East Midlands was evacuated due to a "minor" electrical problem.
The spokeswoman said: "Following a safe arrival last night at East Midlands Airport, flight LS644 from Ibiza had to be evacuated once on stand as a precautionary safety measure.
"All passengers were looked after by our airport team. A full investigation is now under way."
