Pattaya Police are currently investigating reports that two tickets purchased for the missing Malaysian Airline Flight MH 370 were obtained through a Travel Agency in Pattaya.

On Monday afternoon, Police Colonel Supachai, the Pattaya Police Chief, visited two Agencies based in South and Central Pattaya which are believed to be involved in the purchase of two tickets using stolen passports.

An Italian Passport under the name of Mr. Luigi Maraldi and an Austrian Passport under the name of Mr. Christian Kozel were used to purchase two tickets online through the Grand Horizon Travel Agency based in the Pratamnuk area in South Pattaya. They used another Agency, Six Stars Travel situated on the ground floor of Central Festival Pattaya Beach to complete the sale of the tickets on 6th March for travel on 8th March on flight number MH 370 which is currently missing and was last seen on radar close to the Southern tip of Vietnam.

Pattaya Police removed documentation from both Agencies on Monday but refused to give details to the media of exactly what they seized. Reports suggest that both men who boarded the flight using the stolen passports appeared to originate from Asia. Mr. Maralidi is safe and well in Phuket and Mr. Kozel has also been accounted for.

At time of publication of this story, the aircraft is still missing and rumors of what caused the aircraft to disappear continue to circulate. With this seizure of documents from two Pattaya Travel Agencies, speculation of what caused flight MH 370 to disappear is set to intensify.

    WOW, could have made a bet on that…This town doesn’t fail to amaze me. From a hungry chicken thief to stealing the limelight of international disasters. “TIT” sorry rephrase that “TIP”

    I dont get it… The passport have Mr Maladinis picture in the passport (on the picture above), if it’s a fake passport (as the media say), then the photo should have been replaced? And also, if the passports was stolen a year ago and was reported stolen, then the passports would have been worthless for use. As Im told, you can fake passports and use them as long as they are not reported stolen, i might be wrong…

    Anyway, i dont think this is an act of terrorism, if it was, we would see someone take responsibility for it, and They would also relese the identities of the terrorist already by now…

    People who treavel to Europe with fake passport are mostly looking for work and Residence permits.

    A very tragic and sad accident a would guess…

    stolen passports stolen over a year ago, just now discovered amid a crisis
    if a passport is stolen its voided in minutes, seems like someone is not in the loop with communications in the passport system.

    Why does it NOT surprise me, that 2 businesses in Pattaya are prominently featured in what could turn out to be one of the most interesting ‘mysteries’ of the decade to date?

  • gwats1957

    Pattaya is like a magnet, it seems to draw all sorts of things in…… I don’t know whether that is bad or good…

    Correct me if I am wrong but I thought all stolen Passports were reported to Interpole, so why was this not picked up upon when they booked their flights. Strange me thinks money first Passports look o.k. here is your ticket bye,bye.
