Housekeeping staffer returns $750 to flier

Ahmedabad: Luck shone on a passenger headed to Mumbai from Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, as he received his bundle of foreign currency worth $750 which he had forgotten at the security check just before boarding his flight thanks to the integrity and alertness of an airport staffer.

Jeki Chavda, a housekeeping worker at the city airport, was cleaning the trays at the security check counter after they were used by passengers, when he found a bundle of foreign currency in a transparent zip-lock bag in one of the trays.

“While cleaning and restacking the trays, I found a bundle of cash in a plastic bag in one of them. I immediately knew that a passenger must have forgotten it. So I went and handed it over to the CISF personnel at the security check counter,” said Jeki.

Airport sources said that the cash was in foreign currency worth a total of $750. The incident took place around 5pm on Wednesday.

“CISF personnel immediately examined the CCTV footage and identified likely passengers who may have forgotten the cash. After narrowing down the search to a few passengers, CISF officials approached them, verified which one had forgotten the cash and handed it over to him. The passenger in question was just about to board a Mumbai-bound Indigo airlines flight at the time,” said a source.
