The director of Suvarabhumi airport has said that contractors responsible for baggage handling at the Bangkok airport may be sacked if there are repeats of tampering incidents.

Sirot Duangrat was speaking at a press conference following video and picture reports on social media and complaints from members of the public about items going missing from luggage at the airport.

He  reported that investigations had taken place examining operations at carousels inside and outside the terminal but there was no hard evidence yet and no one had been caught.

Investigations were ongoing, he said, as the airport placed the safety of passengers and their belongings as a number one priority.

Bangkok Flight Services - the contractor that handles baggage at the airport said they had done nothing wrong.

Sirot said that security at the entry and exit points point for airport staff was tight and would be further enhanced to make sure that employees could bring nothing in and take nothing out of the airport that was not officially recorded.

Meanwhile Sirot said that the airport authority were working on a plan that could see them taking responsibility for baggage handling away from contractors over the next two years.

People had complained on social media in recent weeks and in person to airport authorities about bags being opened, locks cut and items removed from luggage.

As long as all of the top level staff get their pick of the items taken from luggage the investigations will always reporting "No evidence".

Ive never understood why they take all these items off you that are suppose to be "bombs" and then leave them all stacked up in a big basket in the middle of everyone.  If they are "Bombs" shouldn't they be immediately disposed?? - just a reason to steal methinks..... :post-4641-1156693976:

Bags opened, locks cut, items removed - never ever, impossible, couldn't / doesn't happen, this is based on the fact that no one has ever been caught.

Apart from the guy caught stealing from bags at Suvarnabhumi about 3 weeks ago that is. Which was discussed on this forum.

And, if people can take stuff, out, they can put stuff in.  Drugs, bombs....

I knew the "security" at the front of my village was crap. I had hoped, in vain it seems, that the airport was better.

Perchance they might want to revisit an opportunity that was overlooked when they contracted this out and then seen that it was indeed lucrative. Leave no stone unturned in the search for profit. After all most luggage is insured although rather poorly. I speak from experience.

I agree but can you name us a country where that absolutely never happened?
