The bag was transferred to the lost and found office at Noi Bai International Airport and then returned to the owner thanks to information on personal documents left in the bag.

On July 6, Nguyen Van Quynh, a driver of a shuttle bus from Vinh City to Hanoi also found a laptop bag with VND300 million ($13,000) left on the bus.

The driver reported the item to relevant authorities and returned it to the owner – a passenger from Ha Tinh.


According to Vietnam Airport Ground Services Company Limited (VIAGS), last month, four staff members of VIAGS’s Noi Bai Branch found and returned passengers’ lost items worth up to VND800 million ($34,400).

In the first half of this year, VIAGS found and returned over 6,600 lost items and over VND6 billion ($258,000) in cash.
