Airport workers complain of seasickness after construction

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, March 5 (UPI) -- Passport checkers at a Stockholm airport said recent construction work has led to feelings of seasickness when passengers disembark.

The border security staff at Arlanda Airport said construction work at the hub's terminal 2 was recently completed and the modifications have made it so their work area vibrates strongly when passengers disembark from planes, TheLocal.se reported Wednesday.

"When people start walking through, the whole thing shakes so much that you get seasick," passport checker Patrik Hager told TheLocal.

Hager said he and other workers who experienced the seasick feeling have filed a report with airport officials.

Klas Nilsson, spokesman for airport managers Swedavia, told the Metro newspaper he has not yet seen the report, but the issue is "obviously something we have to look into."
