Late passenger arrested after trying to break into plane at Melbourne airport

Angry passenger breaks through barriers, storms Jetstar plane in Melbourne

It's believed he was furious about missing a flight that had departed hours earlier, and was smoking inside the terminal before running for the plane. After all this, it wasn't even the right flight.

It turns out that the man's air rage was woefully misdirected - the plane he launched his assault on was actually headed to Sydney.

He pushed his way onto the tarmac and attacked the door, before eventually being retained by baggage handlers.

Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers took the person into custody, and have since charged him with one depend of illegal assault of an airline worker.

The extraordinary scenes took place at Melbourne Airport as the irate passenger ran onto the tarmac and stormed the Jetstar plane.

"We had been sitting ready to get on the flight and folks went 'Oh my god, what's going on?'" she informed 9news.com.au.

The Age was told the man was supposed to catch a 9.30am flight to Adelaide and missed it. "This is guy was punching them and scratching at them and they were just trying to hold him back without actually fighting him", eyewitness Susannah Murray told 9 News, adding the incident was "scary" to experience.

"The federal police showed up five minutes later and walked him out". At least two Jetstar employees suffered injuries.

"We praise our crew for safely handling this incident and restraining the passenger until police arrived", Jetstar said in a statement.

It is understood the man asked Jetstar staff about purchasing a ticket.

The staff restrained the 57-year-old - however he managed to break free and again reached the door of the plane.

"This behavior is unacceptable and we have placed an immediate ban on this passenger traveling on all Jetstar and Qantas flights".

More charges may be laid against the man, who is also reported to have enjoyed a cigarette inside the airport before charging the aircraft.
