A passenger airliner from South Korea flies with its door open and safely lands.


On August 5, 2020, a South Korean passenger plane operated by Jin Air flew with one of its doors wide open for nearly two hours before it was safely landed in Jeju, South Korea.

The plane took off from Gimpo Airport in Seoul, bound for the resort island of Jeju with 152 passengers and 11 crew members. During the flight, a loud noise was heard from the back of the plane as one of the rear passenger doors had become unlocked and opened.

Right after the door opened, cabin crew members informed the pilot and the plane was immediately stabilized after the crew members took emergency measures to secure the door by wedging it shut.

The flight continued for two hours and eventually landed safely in Jeju. The Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport said that there were no casualties or injuries from the incident.

The cause of the incident is currently being investigated.
