Jet2.com is the very first airline in Europe to exercise such a ban on morning flights. Also, it has issued a notice to shops and airports to follow this instruction, and this ban would be applicable from Monday onwards.
The ban has been issued following a pledge from Lord Ahmad, the aviation minister who has decided to make air travel secure and attractive for everybody. In addition, the ban is also an important part of the campaign of the airline known as ‘Onboard Together’ that works towards minimizing disruptive behavior onboard the flights. Over 500 passengers had been denied the facility to travel thanks to 50 lifetime bans that were all issued in the year 2015.
Phil Ward, managing director, Jet2.com has said that they have planned to implement the ban on the sale of alcohol in the earliest. He then added that the authorities were quite keen to enabling families flying with Jet2.com to enjoy safe and secure travelling experience with this airlines company.
He said that prohibiting the sale of alcohol on flights before 8 am would be an ideal way to ensure that travellers enjoy a comfortable journey.
Thereafter, he also said that this airlines company was the first European airlines to implement this ban and advise industry partners to follow suit.
The airline also mentioned that it had motivated other airlines companies to adhere to the rule of providing sealed bags for alcohol that would be purchased in airports. This move would prevent the illegal consumption of alcohol both prior to and during the flights.
Police statistics declared that several passengers have been arrested after they had been suspected of being drunk during flights in the last two years. These figures show that 442 people were arrested between March 2014 and March 2016.
Lord Ahmad said that air travellers should keep the safety of their fellow travellers in mind while they are flying.
