Pilot cancels landing due to passengers not wearing seatbelts and people are shocked

Pilot cancels landing due to passengers not wearing seatbelts and people are shocked

A plane landing in Singapore was forced to cancel a landing as passengers on board were not wearing seatbelts.

A pilot flying a passenger plane had to cancel a landing after people on the flight were not wearing their seatbelts.

The Scoot airline flight TR285 flying from Bali to Singapore had the local authority board the plane once it had eventually landed safely.

Footage of the event was posted to TikTok, with clips of the police going on the board and questioning people included.

But the TikTok uploaded by Audil Khalid starts with an announcement from the pilot to ask passengers to fasten their seatbelts as the previous landing was aborted due to people not abiding to the rules.

The pilot also said that he is 'legally not able to land an aircraft if the cabin isn't secured'.

He added: "We are now turning around again for another approach, and if we have to do another missed approach for the same reason, the airport police will be involved and they will take the necessary action."

When the plane finally landed, the passengers were informed that the local authority would be boarding the plane once it had made a complete stop.

You then see multiple officers walk on the aircraft and walk down the aisle to speak to a few individuals.

As you'd expect, many on the flight filmed when the officers came on board, as we all love a bit of drama.

Once the TikToker is off the plane, he films footage of a couple of passengers being questioned by the police.

People have been reacting to the video in the comments section of the TikTok, and it's fair to say many are not impressed.

One person added: "Why on earth would anyone refuse to fasten their seat belt? Seriously!!!!??"

A second added: "OMG JUST FASTEN THE BELT! why it is so hard."

And a third said: "I wish the pilot will do such announcements 17 beautiful year's flying as cabin crew none do care. But this is amazingly good decision by the tech crew"

A Scoot spokesperson has provided a statement the Singaporean news website Must Share News.

It read: "Due to unruly behaviour by a group of passengers, including the refusal to fasten seatbelts during descent, our Captain discontinued the approach into Singapore in the interest of flight safety.

"The flight landed safely on the second approach at Changi Airport without further incident, and the involved passengers were escorted off the aircraft by airport authorities for further investigation."

UNILAD has contacted Scoot for further comment.
