Vietnam: Airport security increased amid complaints of baggage theft

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has ordered enhanced surveillance of staff at airports following many recent complaints about luggage theft. The CAAV is collaborating with the Ministry of Public Security to investigate the complaints of luggage theft at airports. Last year passengers had filed at least 214 complaints about luggage being broken and things stolen, Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper reported.  In the latest case, which has attracted a great deal of public and media attention, three passengers on a Vietjet Air flight from Bangkok to Hanoi complained Sunday that their luggage had been broken into and their brand-name clothes and cosmetics stolen. One of them said she checked in a 20-kilogram suitcase at Bangkok airport but got back a 13-kilogram one in Noi Bai Airport, adding that her lost goods were worth nearly VND20 million (US$915).
