He allegedly stormed the gate, pushed past the crew and ran to plane.

The extraordinary scenes unfolded today after the traveller missed his flight and attempted to forcefully enter another plane that was preparing for take off.

"There was an incident at Melbourne Airport this morning where a passenger assaulted several of our crew, and breached security access to the tarmac". He had tried to board a plane to Sydney.

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.

"We were sitting waiting to get on the flight and people went 'Oh my God, what is going on?'" said a witness for 9News, who identified herself as Susannah. He was then arrested by police officers and charged with one count of unlawful assault. "The federal police confirmed up 5 minutes later and walked him out".

Baggage handlers and cabin crew were praised for their swift intervention to subdue the man, who barrelled his way past airline employees and made a break for the nearest gate, even though he had been told he was hours late.

He has been banned from all Qantas and Jetstar flights for the time being, and he could be excluded from both airlines for life, depending on the upcoming police investigation.

Video taken by a passenger at the airport, which has since gone viral on social media, shows the man at the top of airstairs still attached to a Jetstar plane bound for Sydney.

The bearded and tattooed man, who had greying hair and was wearing a dark sweater, was led back through the airport.

Ironically, the incident comes just two days after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull andHome Affairs Minister Peter Dutton used Melbourne Airport as a platform for discussing tougher security measures announced in the recent federal budget.
