According to 9News, he then lit up a cigarette inside the airport before bolting toward the nearest gate, where he pushed crew out of his way in his mad dash toward the plane.
Australian Federal Police then showed up and escorted the man back through the gate.
The extraordinary scenes unfolded today after the traveller missed his flight and attempted to forcefully enter another plane that was preparing for take off.
Engineers checked over the plane and gave it the all clear and passengers eventually boarded the flight and departed later that day.
In the short clip, the man can be seen climbing the stairs to the empty plane and attempting to open its door, first simply pulling the handle towards him and then lifting his foot next to the door to give himself a stronger pull as airport crew rush to stop him.
"We were sitting waiting to get on the flight and people went, 'Oh my God, what is going on?' Someone was running on the tarmac".
"This man was trying to get up the stairs, he was physically fighting with the staff, punching and scratching them", said Susannah.
A Jetstar spokeswoman told The West Online that its baggage handlers, went above and beyond to restrain the man.
A Jetstar spokesman said the man's behaviour was "unacceptable" and the company has banned him from travelling on any future Jetstar and Qantas flights.
He has since been banned from traveling on all Jetstar and Qantas flights, The Australian noted. He will appear in court next month and the police said that more charges may be laid.
That was something that clearly didn't sit well with one furious Melbourne passenger, who was caught on camera storming the tarmac in an attempt to board a Jetstar plane, news.com.au reports.
The alleged attack resulted in two Jetstar employees being left with physical injuries.
The incident took place on the tarmac at Melbourne Airport in Australia on Thursday morning.
