Staff at Vilnius Airport in Lithuania make a seasonal tree using items confiscated from passengers

PUBLISHED December 17, 2019

Vilnius Airport in Lithuania has created a 'Christmas tree' made of dangerous items staff have had to confiscate from passengers - including blades, knives and bullets.

Aviation security at Vilnius Airport took a unique approach to their festive decorations this year, displaying a tree made entirely from prohibited things that passengers have left behind, in order to send an 'educational message' about what should never be seen in an airport terminal.

The tree, complete with a Christmas star made of blades, was called a 'masterpiece' by the airport and urged travellers to make sure they're not carrying any of the banned items next time they board a plane.

On LinkedIn, Lithuanian Airports wrote, "Here at Lithuanian Airports, we are certain that you have seen many different Christmas trees - natural, modern, innovative, and simply quirky. We can guarantee - you haven't seen anything like this.

"With the winter travel season well under way, the Aviation security officers at Vilnius Airport opted for an unusual take on the Christmas classic, aiming to send an educational message on the importance of aviation security."
