The aircrafts didn’t determine when they may cut off help.

Pech said individuals regularly lose their effects at Juba International Airport as a result of what he calls “disruption” at the appearance terminal.

“Now and again you truly don’t know whether these are a piece of the air terminal specialists or they are only sellers around. Like here and there they come and attempt to take your gear from you commandingly and you truly need to persevere and disclose to them I am doing it without anyone else’s help,” Pech told VOA’s “South Sudan in Focus.”

He said air terminal staff should be plainly distinguished.

“There is [a] requirement for authorities to have a particular sort of uniform and IDs consistently in plain view so you realize who is an official that you can trust or who isn’t, with the goal that when something is lost it can undoubtedly be followed in light of the fact that air terminal specialists will realize who was on obligation that day and those individuals will be responsible,” Pech told VOA.

Kur Kuol, overseeing chief of Juba International Airport, said he means to meet with administrators of the two carriers to examine the issue.

“I gave a request to one of my secretaries to compose a round to all global [airlines] so I meet them and hear their objections,” Kuol told “South Sudan in Focus.” “We are moving toward the year’s end, and consistently around the year’s end there are a ton of issues that happen so we set up our request before that opportunity arrives.”
