Police have closed Melbourne International Airport in Australia until further notice due to a security breach on Thursday morning.
An airport official said an unauthorized student boarded a commercial jet. The student was removed from the plane and is being questioned.
Melbourne police said the yet-to-be named college student with a pilot’s license breached airport security and boarded a full-size passenger jet that was undergoing maintenance. He reportedly jumped the fence to gain access.
Melbourne police said at this time all flights are suspended and people should avoid the area. Security is currently conducting a sweep of the airfield. The student’s car which was parked outside the terminal is being vetted.
