Good Plastic, Bad Plastic: Every Piece Of Your Luggage Will Now be Wrapped At Airports For Rs50

Confusion, lack of coordination, indecision, whatever it is, we don’t know. On one hand, the federal cabinet announced earlier this week to declare Islamabad polythene bags-free from August 14 and, on the other, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has made it mandatory for all the check-in baggage to be wrapped with plastic sheets.

A notification dated July 18 says the baggage of all domestic and international passengers will be wrapped in plastic before going to the scanning counters of Airport Security Force (ASF), Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) and Customs. And it will cost Rs50 per bag.

Meanwhile, Air Vice-Marshal Shahid Latif is associated the company responsible for this exercise [if you notice the notification carefully].

But this cannot go unnoticed no matter have how many justifications one gives for such things.
