The aircraft was operating flight EK332 from Dubai International Airport to Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport when the incident occurred upon arrival. It is believed that the aircraft arrived on time in Manila.

The Boeing 777-300ER, registration A6-ENN, was delivered to the airline back in February 2014 and is currently 6.5 years old. After a short spell of maintenance the door will be fixed and the aircraft re-entered into service.
