EXPERIENCED TEAM

ASHTREE Surveillance Officers have between
10 to 20 years of experience in passengers
surveillance.

 

This allow airlines to ensure that
passenger belongings and safety are protected
until they reach their destination safely. Frequent
reports of airline theft during air travel can be an
individual or a syndicated act.

 

During flights,
passengers can have their valuables stolen from
the overhead luggage compartments when lights
are turned off or when cabin crews are resting
during breaks.

THE STRATEGIES

The employment of a surveillance officer by airlines can be both a passive or active strategy.

PASSIVE STRATEGY

A passive strategy is to covert surveillance of passenger behaviours throughout the flight, especially during lights off periods when passengers are sleeping.

ACTIVE STRATEGY

An active strategy may include overt announcement to passengers that the airline employs surveillance officers to keep perpetrators wary of being caught.

EMPLOYEE OR FOE?

"An American flight attendant has been indicted on charges that she stole close to 1,500 mini-bottles of liquor. She faced criminal charges of theft of property over $10,000, unlawful sale of alcohol, and unauthorised transportation of alcohol and unauthorized storage of liquor for sale.

American investigators confirmed she would put the 50ml bottles of rum, vodka, gin, whiskey and other alcoholic beverages in her bag and which she would typically sell online later.

 

She was arrested soon after the airline introduced agents who befriended her through chat groups and social media and later made undercover purchases which exposed her crime."

SMUGGLING

"Indian Airlines has recently seen a significant rise in
smuggling of valuable items, including gold, silver
and alcohol by its cabin crew. The airline has recently introduced a zero tolerance policy, prohibiting crew from removing anything that does not belong to them, including food utensils, from the aircraft.

 

This rule was implemented after a senior cabin crew
member was caught smuggling bottles of alcohol
from an international flight. The airline has confirmed that the cabin crew member has been suspended."

CASH THEFT

"A middle eastern flight attendant was charged with stealing $5000 from passenger wallets. American airlines want their crew to stop stealing business class bedding.

 

A Chinese airline is now cracking down on flight attendants stealing from their aircraft and the list of items they are interested ranges from pens to ice cream. Routinely, flight attendants have been caught red handed."

DON'T BECOME PART OF THE STATISTIC

The reputational loss of the airline often exceeds the financial losses.
