  • A videograb showing the man trying to enter the Jetstar plane

According to Channel 9 the man made several attempts to enter the plane, "before he begins to bash it with his feet".

The man then started smoking inside the airport terminal and at about 9.30am he rushed to the nearest gate where he pushed past staff and ran onto the tarmac.

A video released by 9news shows the passenger, who had missed his flight to Adelaide, trying to pull open the door of an aircraft as airport staff believed to be baggage handlers raced up the stairs to apprehend him.

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

It was delayed for at least an hour, as engineers examined the plane to confirm it was clear for take-off.

"Someone was running on the tarmac!"

'This man was trying to get up the stairs, he was physically fighting with the staff, punching and scratching them, ' she said. The video ends as the man is about to be confronted by staff. "The federal police confirmed up 5 minutes later and walked him out".
