There was an unusual situation at the Warsaw Chopin airport. The famous cellist, Amit Pelled, is forbidden to bring spare airplanes on the plane. "We treat security issues as a priority," the airport official explains.
"At the airport in Warsaw, for the first time in my life, I was taken away from all wires, claiming that bringing them to the plane is too dangerous," Classic FM Radio Amit Pelled said in an email.
"I always have spare wires with me and I have never been asked to return them. Well, at least I was not deprived of a cello with the accusation that I could punch someone with my leg," added the musician.
Everything is in accordance with the regulations
Pirot Ruqki of Aeroport Chopin's Public Relations Department confirms that this has happened. "The operator of the screening control of the passenger's hand luggage stated that there are tubes of purple that due to their properties – in accordance with the regulations – qualify as prohibited objects" – we read by mail to the editor.
"The operator of the security control, after hearing the possibility of wearing violet wires on the ship, repeatedly suggested to the passenger to put them in the declared luggage, for which the passenger did not agree," explains the airport official.
"Security is a priority"
"We are very sorry that such a situation occurred at our airport, but we treat security issues as a priority," Ruđki concluded.
Amit Pelled was a guest at the Krzysztof Penderecki festival. He played the Cello II concert during the inaugural concert. The festival's program, entirely prepared by Elzbieta Penderetka, includes ten concerts, including seven symphonic and three-chamber concerts.
