CLEVELAND (TNS) — A Spirit Airlines flight that departed from Cleveland en route to Los Angeles landed in Denver Thursday after a passenger tried to open an exit door while in flight.
Spirit Airlines did not disclose what time this incident happened and noted that “opening a door inflight is impossible due to air pressure inside the cabin pinning the door against its frame with force stronger than any person could ever overcome.”
No passengers were hurt during the incident, the airline said.
Denver law enforcement took the passenger into custody once the airplane landed, the statement says.
“Safety is our number one priority at Spirit Airlines,” the statement says.”
The airline thanked crew members and guests who helped with the situation.
