Arab Weather - Passengers on China Airlines Flight No. 2754 experienced a state of panic when a woman accidentally opened the emergency door, thinking she was opening the toilet door. The accident occurred on the runway of Zhuzhou Airport in Zhejiang Province, where the plane was parked due to a delayed take-off. The wrong action led to the cancellation of the flight to Chengdu, southwest China, and the police were called to investigate the woman. Affected passengers were compensated 400 yuan each, along with emergency door activation costs amounting to hundreds of thousands of yuan depending on the aircraft model.

What happens if the plane door opens during flight?

If an aircraft door is opened during flight, the following can occur:

  1. Strong atmospheric effects: Opening the aircraft door during flight causes a strong air flow inside the aircraft due to the different atmospheric pressure between the inside and the outside, which leads to strong atmospheric effects inside the aircraft.
  2. Safety Hazard: Passengers and crew may be at risk of injury due to air forces resulting from rapid movement and air currents.
  3. Impact on the stability of the aircraft: Opening the emergency door during flight may affect the stability of the aircraft and cause difficulties in controlling it, requiring an immediate response from the cabin crew to regain control and ensure the safety of passengers.
  4. Possibility of flight cancellation: The flight may be canceled if opening the door causes any serious problem, and the plane may be directed to make an emergency landing at the nearest airport.
