Passenger forces emergency return of flight to Sydney

An Australian-Malaysia flight returned to Sydney due to a disruptive passenger, causing domestic flight disruptions at the busy airport. Malaysia Airlines’ MH122 departed for Kuala Lumpur with 194 passengers and 5 crew but turned back over a ‘disruptive passenger.’

After threats, crew checked the backpack for explosives but found none.

A 45-year-old man was arrested, leading to a three-hour delay before the rest of the passengers were released.

The airport remained operational for some flights during the emergency response, with no international cancellations.

The man was set to be charged without specified offenses.
