A man has been dragged off a Jetstar flight in a dramatic arrest on the tarmac in Sydney.

Fellow passengers filmed as the 25-year-old was confronted by two Australian Federal Police officers telling him to leave his seat.

"I've done absolutely nothing," the man can be heard saying to the officers.

"I'm not going anywhere, I've got work in six hours on the … Gold Coast."

In a video posted on TikTok, one officer appears to undo the man's seatbelt before he responds "don't touch me … I'm getting up".

The officers continue to escort the man off, one leading the way with the other behind holding up the collar of the man's shirt.

Jetstar said its crew requested help from the AFP "due to a disruptive passenger prior to the departure of a flight from Sydney to the Gold Coast".

It's not known exactly what the man is alleged to have done.

He has been charged with endangering the safety of an aircraft, police said.

"The safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and we have zero tolerance for this type of behaviour," the airline said.
