According to Times Live, BidAir Services at OR Tambo International Airport suspended the employee for "mishandling luggage".

Spokesperson for the airport, Samukelo Khambule, said that after the video surfaced they engaged BidAir regarding its employee's behaviour. BidAir had identified the baggage handler and suspended her with immediate effect. The woman would also face disciplinary action.

Khambule further told Times Live that there are many professional employees who work for various companies in the airport ecosystem."It’s therefore disconcerting when an employee falls short of the standards of the service level agreement that we have with companies performing licensed activities within the airport," he added.
