"The airline flew in a new pilot and the plane is expected to take off in the evening," Stockholm-Arlanda airport spokesman Jan Lindqvist told news agency TT.
The Ukraine International Airlines airplane had stopped over in Stockholm for reloading and was due to fly on to Tenerife -- one of Spain's Canary Islands -- when the incident occurred, TT said.
A blood test was taken from the pilot and he was later released, though he is suspected of violating air traffic regulations.
