The man named Abdullah Hayee Mayeh, a 29-year-old airport worker, was arrested following a CCTV footage showing him opening passenger bags.
The worker was seen looking inside bags, planning to steal some of the passengers' valuables.
The video was captured on a JetStar Flight bound for Singapore from Phuket, Thailand. Once the video was uploaded on the internet, Jetstar was informed of the incident and immediately launched an investigation into the matter.
The company released an official statement, saying:
“Jetstar is aware of a video circulating online and we are taking the matter very seriously.”
“We have launched an immediate investigation and will work with Airports of Thailand, our ground handler BAGS and our local security company to ensure the security of our customers’ property onboard our flights.”
