The case was inspected using a robot and x-ray equipment. There was nothing dangerous about it. The action ended at 8:30 p.m. The owner of the baggage has not been identified. Due to this intervention, the flight to Thessaloniki was delayed by 30 minutes.

Fines for forgotten luggage

Each baggage without visible supervision is treated by the airport services as a potential threat, which involves the initiation of appropriate security procedures, such as: designation of a security zone, port evacuation and pyrotechnic recognition of a given baggage. These procedures are time consuming and can result in flight delays. In order to avoid them, it is necessary to avoid rushing and performing activities that cause difficulties, such as leaving excess baggage anywhere after repacking the proper baggage. Do not take packages and luggage with unknown contents from strangers. If we encounter a similar proposal, we should immediately notify the airport services about the incident. Leaving your baggage unattended is subject to sanctions in the form of a fine.
