Cartons not banned at Abu Dhabi airport
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.”
