Travel Daily - - News -

SEV­ERAL air­port se­cu­rity em­ploy­ees have been dis­missed from Ger­many’s Mu­nich Air­port, af­ter an in­ci­dent last week which saw a pas­sen­ger pass through a check­point with­out be­ing scanned.

Flights were grounded for seven hours af­ter an of­fi­cer was dis­tracted chat­ting to col­leagues, with the omis­sion not recog­nised un­til the un­scanned woman had boarded her flight.

More than 300 ser­vices were can­celled, at an es­ti­mated cost of more than $1 mil­lion.
