Airline worker falls onto the runway after stepping out of a plane without realising the runway steps have been moved away

An airline worker was injured after falling onto the runway after stepping out of a plane after the stepladder was removed.

Video shared on social media shows the moment the ground staffer fell from a TransNusa Airbus A320 at Jakarta Airport, Indonesia as the flight crew prepared for takeoff.

The worker allegedly saluted the crew for a safe flight while ground staff removed the mobile stairs from the plane, reports indicate.

Seemingly unaware that the steps had been moved, the agent, still talking with the crew, walked off the plane and fell straight to the tarmac.

The worker received medical treatment immediately and did not sustain life threatening injuries, a source told AirLive.net.

The ground staffer fell from the aircraft’s L1 door after the ladder was abruptly removed without proper coordination, sources claim. 

It is estimated that he fell a few metres from the plane to the tarmac. 

The incident is understood to be in violation of aviation rules which reportedly state that workers should not remove a ladder while an aircraft door is still open. 

Jakarta Airport authorities have launched an investigation into the incident and have ‘assured measures’ to prevent future accidents, Aviation24.be reported.

TransNusa Airlines, which launched in August 2005, is headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The air carrier briefly ceased operations in 2020 following the coronavirus pandemic. It was then sold to China Aircraft Leasing Group and relaunched in 2022.
