Car­tons not banned at Abu Dhabi air­port

Gulf News - - Na­tion -

Afake mes­sage an­nounc­ing a ban on lug­gage in car­tons and sacks on air­lines op­er­at­ing via Abu Dhabi Air­ports is cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia.

The forged doc­u­ment has quoted a se­nior air­port of­fi­cial as say­ing that the ban will come into effect on De­cem­ber 15 as part of im­ple­ment­ing safety and se­cu­rity stan­dards. The fake cir­cu­lar said the move was to avoid break­down of con­veyer belts.

Abu Dhabi Air­ports said in a state­ment is­sued to Gulf News on Wed­nes­day evening: “There has been a state­ment cir­cu­lat­ing in pub­lic do­main stat­ing that Abu Dhabi In­ter­na­tional Air­port no longer al­lows car­ton boxes or sacks as lug­gage for pas­sen­gers. Abu Dhabi Air­ports con­firms that this state­ment is false and not re­lated to the com­pany or any of its op­er­at­ing air­ports.”
