Hi Academia,

A man has been arrested for opening a door of an Asiana Airlines flight as it was landing in South Korea.

All 194 passengers survived the flight, which landed safely but with its door still open at Daegu International Airport on Friday.

Some passengers fainted while others had breathing problems and were taken to hospital, local media reported.

The man in his 30s said he was feeling suffocated and wanted to get off quickly, BBC News reporting.

For airline passengers, safety is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, there are instances where passengers may become a serious threat to the safety of everyone on board. One such threat is the act of attempting to forcefully open the airplane door during a flight. This type of behavior can lead to catastrophic consequences, including loss of life and damage to the aircraft. Not only is it a danger to the passengers and crew, but it is also illegal and can result in severe consequences for the individual committing the act. It is crucial for all passengers to understand the severity of this threat and to report any suspicious behavior to the airline crew immediately. By working together, we can help ensure a safe and secure flight for everyone on board.

The safety and security of passengers during air travel is of paramount importance to the aviation industry. Airlines invest heavily in sophisticated security measures and procedures to ensure the safety of their passengers. However, despite these measures, incidents involving mentally unstable passengers forcing open emergency exit doors during high altitude flights have occurred.

Pre-flight screening of passengers, rigorous background checks for crew members, and the installation of a range of safety features on aircraft are part of rigid security measures. These safety features include emergency exit doors, which are designed to provide a quick and safe exit for passengers in the event of an emergency.

This is very important to identify what type of passengers qualify and  to be seated in emergency exit seating rows that are so close to emergency exit doors.

Forcing open an emergency exit door during a high altitude flight can have catastrophic consequences. The sudden decompression of the aircraft can result in rapid and uncontrolled movement of air, causing passengers to be sucked out of the aircraft. This can lead to severe injury or death. In addition, the sudden loss of pressure can also cause damage to the aircraft’s systems, potentially leading to the loss of control of the aircraft.

Several incidents involving the forced opening of emergency exit doors during high altitude flights have occurred in recent years. In 2018, a passenger on a Jetstar flight in Australia attempted to force open an emergency exit door mid-flight. The passenger was restrained by crew members and the flight landed safely. In another incident, a passenger on a Delta Airlines flight attempted to open an emergency exit door during a flight from Minneapolis to Los Angeles. The passenger was subdued by other passengers and the flight landed safely.

In short, Forcing open an emergency exit door during a high altitude flight is a serious threat to the safety and security of passengers. The aviation industry must continue to prioritize passenger safety and security by investing in sophisticated security measures and procedures. The industry must also remain vigilant in identifying potential threats and responding quickly and effectively to emergency situations. By doing so, the industry can ensure that air travel remains one of the safest modes of transportation.
