JetSMART flight JA341, an Airbus A320neo, had to return to departing airport due to loud noise coming from door 1R.
The aircraft had almost reached FL310 in the climb, 17 minutes after takeoff, when the flight crew elected to turn back to Santiago. A quick descent was made to FL100 as the flight headed back. A few holding patterns were flown until it made a safe landing back at Santiago at 17:37 UTC, one hour and 33 minutes after takeoff.
