Shocking Video: Ground Handling Error Sends Airline Worker Plummeting From Airbus A320 In Indonesia

An airline employee fell off a TransNusa Airbus A320 in Indonesia, and video of the incident is spreading widely. He stepped out the door of the aircraft – just as stairs to the aircraft were being removed. Fault here lies with the ground handler, which shouldn’t remove the stairs while the aircraft’s door is open.

Reportedly the man was not seriously injured and received immediate treatment.

The 2006 delivery Airbus registration PK-TLB belonged to Air Berlin and then Chengdu Airlines before being delivered to Indonesian low cost carrier TransNusa in August 2022. Today the aircraft flew from Bali to Jakarta and back twice before flying from Jakarta to Yogyakarta and back.
