Flight attendant jailed for smuggling drugs into Melbourne Airport


A former Malaysia Airlines flight attendant who smuggled more than 2.5kg of heroin into Melbourne in a “clumsily executed” fashion has been jailed for at least three years. Cabin crew member Fariq Aqbal Omar, 34, walked through Melbourne Airport with rectangular bulges showing through the pants and vest of his airline uniform in May 2018. The bulges turned out to be 10 packages of pure heroin, with a street value of more than $3 million.
