A man has been charged with assaulting an airline employee after an alleged security breach at Melbourne Airport on Thursday.

The 57-year-old man has been charged on summons with unlawful assault and will appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court next month, Australian Federal Police said.

"Inquiries into this matter remain ongoing and the AFP cannot rule out that further charges may be laid," an AFP spokeswoman told AAP on Friday.
