A tour group, which on airport Frankfurt had arrived, customs kept busy.
A suitcase full of food was discovered among the travelers, but what was even more incredible was the excuse they gave to customs airport Frankfurt presented.
The -fact that customs officers occasionally see unusual things or objects at work should no longer surprise anyone. This is one of the reasons why the TV broadcaster “Kabel Eins” has the TV program “Attention Control”, which accompanies law enforcement officers such as customs officers in their work.
- Frankfurt Airport is the largest commercial airport in Germany
- In terms of passenger volume, it was the fourth largest in Europe in 2017 after London-Heathrow, Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle and Amsterdam Schiphol, and it ranks 14th worldwide
- Around 70 million passengers took off or landed there in 2019
- In addition, there are over 2 million tons of air freight – as much as nowhere else in Europe!
As part of “ Attention Control”, customs officers at Frankfurt Airport were also accompanied in their everyday life. One of the broadcasts showed how customs caught the tour group with a suitcase full of groceries.
When the travelers were checked, the groceries came to light quickly; they were not particularly hidden. In principle, not all foods are forbidden, but the Vietnamese had pork in their luggage, which is not allowed to be imported.
Frankfurt Airport: Vietnamese have THIS excuse
“ We can’t eat the food here, so we make our own food with noodles,” was the excuse of one Vietnamese woman. They would always do that abroad. They just couldn’t stand the foreign food. Whether noodles, soup or meat, all of this was found in the suitcases of the Vietnamese.
