A baby was smuggled inside a passenger’s hang luggage on board an Air France flight on Monday night, according to local sources.
A passenger on board the flight from Istanbul to Paris CDG raised the alarm when they saw a woman was carrying a baby in her hand luggage, Planet.fr reports.
He alerted the crew and they were redirected towards the front of the plane.
The press service of Air France confirmed the information and said the child was travelling without a ticket.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
