Up to 10 years in prison for passenger who tampered with device
On the 27th, police applied for an arrest warrant for a man in his 30s who threatened the safety of passengers by opening the door of an aircraft that was about to land at Daegu Airport from about 213 meters above the ground.
According to police, the Daegu East Police Station applied for an arrest warrant for Lee, 33, on suspicion of violating the Aviation Security Act. Lee is suspected of unauthorizedly opening the emergency exit door just before landing when an Asiana Airlines passenger plane departing Jeju Airport at around 12:35 p.m. the previous day approached Daegu Airport. Article 23 of the Aviation Security Act imposes up to 10 years in prison for passengers who tamper with doors, exits, or devices in an aircraft in operation.
During the incident, Mr. Lee continued his dangerous behavior by opening the door and hanging onto the side wall, but was subdued by the crew and passengers. However, Lee’s rampage, which took place about 213 meters above the ground, caused passengers on board to complain of extreme anxiety, and nine of them were treated at a hospital for symptoms such as difficulty breathing.

During the police investigation, Ms. Lee reportedly said, “I had been feeling stressed after losing my job recently,” and “I opened the door because I was frustrated before the plane landed and wanted to get off quickly.”
