It is believed the passenger was a senior executive with a tablet and the flight headed for Melbourne was an hour late as result, 3AW reported.

Qantas confirmed a passenger on flight QF2133 ‘did not follow instruction with regard to an electronic device’.

‘Qantas flight QF1233 operating from Canberra to Melbourne on Friday evening returned to the gate shortly after pushing back from the aerobridge,’ Qantas said in a statement.

‘A passenger failed to follow crew instructions to switch their electronic device to flight mode.

‘The safety of our passengers is our number one priority.’

The plane landed in Melbourne on Friday, but it is believed to have been an hour late.
