CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga -- The Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) has commended a lady guard for her honesty after turning over a wallet left behind by a passenger at the airport’s greeters area last January 1.
CIAC president Alberto Melo said aviation security personnel Lorna Brinosa turned over a wallet containing PHP182,000 cash to airport operations officers, who listed the money as lost and unclaimed items.
Except for the cash, he said there was no identification card or any document found inside the wallet.
The CIAC official said the 39-year-old Brinosa, a security guard of the 888 Gallant Security Corp. assigned at the landside commercial area of the airport terminal, found the wallet on the floor of a nearby light post.
“We commend the honesty of Ms. Brinosa as other persons of lesser character might have kept the cash since the wallet has no ID of (the) owner,” he said.
Melo assured passengers of Clark airport’s strict policy to immediately turn over or return lost or abandoned items to their rightful owners.
The Clark airport averages 11,500 passengers daily and registers a weekly average of 726 combined domestic and international flights. (PNA)
