A 29-year-old man will appear in court Friday after being arrested at the St. John's airport last night.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary say the man tried to enter a restricted area of the airport.

Police noted that the accused is not from Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Passenger safety and airport security were not threatened, said police. 

He was charged with breaching the Canadian Aviation Security Regulations Act.
