Luggage of flight crew being checked

New Delhi: Following the arrest of a Jet Airways air hostess, airport security agencies said that now airline crew members will be under more scrutiny with each bag checked thoroughly before they are allowed to board a flight.
"There is greater vigilance and focus now on airline crew members and staff after the incident. Bags are being checked thoroughly, both through the screening process and physical check. Since they have a separate entry process, security has been stepped up," said an airport official.
Sources said security officials have been asked to step up their focus on airline members in particular. Officials have been told to check both their hand baggage and the registered baggage before they are allowed to board a flight.
