Man Late for Flight Storms Tarmac to Fight His Way Onto Plane

Angry passenger breaks through barriers, storms Jetstar plane in Melbourne

In the short clip, the man can be seen climbing the stairs to the empty plane and attempting to open its door, first simply pulling the handle towards him and then lifting his foot next to the door to give himself a stronger pull as airport crew rush to stop him. He then started smoking inside the airport terminal and ran to the nearest gate.

Witnesses say the man climbed halfway up the stairs to the plane's door before being restrained by baggage handlers, but then managed to reach the plane itself.

"We were sitting waiting to get on the flight and people went 'Oh my god, what is going on?'" witness Susannah told Channel 9 News.

"We reward our crew for safely dealing with this incident and restraining the passenger till police arrived", Jetstar mentioned in a press release. "This man was attempting to rise up the steps, he was bodily preventing with the employees, punching and scratching them".

Engineers are said to have inspected the plane for damage before its departure, delaying the flight by as much as an hour.

Jetstar confirmed that several crew members had been injured and said two flights were delayed by the incident. Australian Federal Police (AFP) has taken the man into custody and charges are yet to be laid.

The incredible scene occurred at Melbourne airport on Thursday morning, when Australia Federal Police were called in response to an incident on Terminal 4.

"This behaviour is unacceptable and we have placed an immediate ban on this passenger travelling on all Jetstar and Qantas flights". According to a report in The Age, the man crawled into the baggage area and into a security zone.
