USA Today in the US would be advisable as it’s a national paper. This would give you such a wider audience in the US (that’s if the passenger(s) are from the USA). Any papers published nationally in Britain?
The local press in the UK tends not to be very well known outside the town or city where the paper is published. There are plenty of national newspapers (Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent (broadsheets) and The Sun, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Daily Express (tabloids), to name a few).
If the OP is serious about giving the story wider publicity it may also be a good idea to contact the BBC who might put something on their news website which seems to be pretty widely read both in the UK and overseas. Their news website has a feedback form here
which I'm sure could be used to alert them to the story.
