Airline passenger opens emergency exit for fresh air, fined $15000”

The incident took place on the intervening night of April 28 and April 29, when Chen (second name not given) tried to disembark from the plane at the Mianyang airport in the southwestern province of Sichuan, China.

When a passenger sitting in the plane started to feel heat during landing, he opened the emergency exit door to get fresh air.

It reminded passengers that the unauthorised opening of a plane's emergency exit doors is illegal. He was also fined 70,000 yuan, or about $11,000 to cover the airline's maintenance and delay costs. The passenger had just arrived from the island of Hainan.

As he pulled the handle beside his seat expecting the window to roll down, he was not expecting the entire wall to collapse and the emergency slide being deployed.

"Because it was so stuffy, so hot on the plane, I just pushed down on the window handle beside me".

The crew member immediately informed the police, after which he was taken into custody for 15 days.

The airline, which was not named in the report, said it would cooperate with public security agencies in their investigation. According to the airlines, all passengers were made aware of the location of emergency exit during the pre-flight safety demonstration. In this regard, the passenger was put in a Chinese prison for 15 days and imposed a monetary penalty equivalent to 700 thousand Russian rubles. One particular 25-year-old passenger surnamed Chen was unaware of the fact.

He claimed that he accidentally opened the emergency door as he was getting airsick and wanted some fresh air.

The man, who said he was anxious about getting air sick, was detained for a week and fined 500 yuan after the flight was delayed for an hour. The flight was delayed by over an hour.
