"It's well calculated for the salaries of the porters they're crying," summed up the essence of the airport's lack of Liszt Ferenc airport, a stapler working on our page. We began to deal with this issue a few weeks ago as more and more readers reported that the package that passed through Budapest was opened, searched and stolen.
The informant who asked that his name remain silent said that he was willing to speak because conditions prevailing at Budapest airport would overburden him, which would do his job honestly. Package withdrawal is a continuing problem at Liszt Ferenc International Airport.
"It is not the opening of packages in the airport building." The parcel journey is tracked all the time, the workers of the various companies work together, there are also the airport staff. direction to the aircraft, "explained the informant. However, the airplane is performing decades of routine.
The shippers work in three-level brigades.
One of them put the suitcases on the mat and two people are in the luggage compartment. One of the workers in the luggage compartment is the porter and the other is the operator. At the beginning of the work, the opening man builds a wall in the luggage difficult to open, especially from the case with foil.
The loader task is the most complex. It takes physical strength to get rid of the next packages of the conveyor belt. However, you also need good intuition and routine to decide for a moment if you have a promising bag or something you do not want to deal with. In the latter case, he places his luggage in the luggage compartment. However, if you consider it worth a package, throw it behind the wall. The loot comes here, who opens it quickly, examines the suitcase and finally puts it back to the rest.
The team does not accidentally work in such an organization. "The machine is loaded for up to half an hour. There are only two people working for three people, because one of them is worried about the opening."
This raises the law because they also do not pay attention to this area. As it turns out, in principle, the flight baggage is controlled at various points.
There are cops who come in occasionally, but they are the easiest to spot. Every car at the airport has a corporate signal if we see a civilian car, of course they are the police
"Explained our informant.
In the luggage compartment, of course, the security guards are also working with cameras to record everything to work out.
Carriers tell guards when to turn the camera
He pointed out how easy it was to circumvent this security measure. And why does the guard still want to grumble? "It's also the fact that the workers told the guards: if you have everything to do, you will be able to pack the package next week because everyone we're going to the photos. "
These two points are the key to status at the Budapest airport. The reason for the plunder is the low remuneration of the workers and, on the other hand, the lack of labor, on the one hand, emerged from the description of our informant.
No money, few people, so they can steal
"We do a very difficult job at a salary of a thousand dollars an hour.We raise tons of tons a day.In kerosene, you often have to work on knees that ruin your joints, the hearing protector you get is nothing worthy of loss I bought a good hearing protector for me, so it's not worth anyone, "he outlined the working conditions.
So it is understandable that people need to fish for work. "There are so many people who do not accept anyone." In principle, there is due diligence, but I know a man whose police affairs were a criminal record, but they were recruited.There is a course and a test, but it is the examiner's reaction to all ".
And yet, it is completely inconceivable who works as a loader because the outsourcer is employing people. There is so little man there was a worker who was fired, but for a few weeks he was already working there for just another subcontractor.
In addition, workers are not declared for their full payment, and part of their money is pocketed. According to the man, they receive an amount of 200-240 thousand HUF per month, but they work 10 hours a day, but they seek three or four times more. "Everything is based on the work of the worker."
They were stealing steadily
In his view, it would be easy to eliminate harmful practices if people were paid. "We hear the sums paid by airlines to serve the companies. You can pay, but nobody really cares what's going on with the packages."
But morality is getting worse. The stevedore told me that in Malév's time there was still some sort of swearword among the invaders. They stole money from a thousand dollars and made up 40% of the good old days. The outgoing packages were opened, not the arrivals. The latter was another practical reason. "If the package received is dirty, they can fall short." The workers are still crowded when the passenger reports theft, but today it does not matter, at the airport there is an open secret to what is happening.
Our question is that airport workers operate as a kind of mafia in the industry, with the cargo genre. "There is no contact with the managers. The chief of staff gets money to give a good flight to the brigade.
Then protect your package
After describing the Golden Age of existing socialism, the sheriff also shared hopeful information with us. It was not a question of improving the situation, but how to protect our packages. It is important to know that packages are not only open in Budapest, but the theft is true, to varying degrees, but everywhere.
Advice from a source who knows about Packers:
- The wrapped package is more macerated to open, and there is less risk of theft.
- As soon as the package is received, let's take a look at our briefcase to report a possible shortage immediately.
- Do not leave valuables in your suitcase.
- If you ask for our hand luggage in the machine, take the time to withdraw the values.
He has experience that there are other safe flights.
- Machines operated by Tel Aviv have special safety features and do not steal them.
- London flights are safe even with low cost airlines.
A forklift truck will also provide advice to those who would like to have a challenging, but well-paid job, after what has been said above. "The police are reluctant to move to the people, but check them out at random." It was that the outside workers were searched and when they found something they were denounced.
But this hardness is rare. "
It is the responsibility of the airlines
We asked the airport operator what to do with the theft. According to László Kurucz, communications officer at Budapest Airport, the airport has built a security system in its territory that prevents theft. Misuse occurs in the airplane's luggage compartment, and these are areas supervised by airlines. Airport management is responsible for aviation safety, and baggage handling is the responsibility of airlines, the communications officer said. Server companies also employ package management and security personnel who oversee them.
"Since March this year, police and Budapest airport, airlines and land servers have handled the issue at the highest level of management and various measures were introduced at the airport, which has drastically reduced the number of deprivations of luggage "At the same time, as was evident in last week's press reports, there is still work, as we do not consider any theft acceptable," wrote László Kurucz.
