Passenger clears Podgorica security with gas cartridges

Air Serbia has filed a complaint against Podgorica Airport after its flight JU173 from the Montenegrin capital to Belgrade was delayed last Friday evening when a passenger cleared security with two gas cartridges in her carry-on bag, which she reported to have with her to the cabin crew after boarding and prior to departure. The passenger, who is a mountaineer and used the gas cartridges for her kettle, passed security at Podgorica Airport but was not enquired about the items. After she reported them to the cabin crew the captain called the police and the items were removed from the aircraft. The Civil Aviation Agency of Montenegro has determined that the security staff member checking bags at the airport made an error and has been fined 150 euros for the omission. Gas cartridges and canisters are not permitted in carry-on luggage or checked baggage.
