Ryanair, Europe’s No. 1 airline, today (14 Aug) called on UK airports to take necessary measures to prevent excessive alcohol consumption, in the wake of increased disruptive behaviour from passengers travelling from British airports.
The CAA reported a 600% increase in disruptive passenger incidents in the UK between 2012 and 2016 with most “involving alcohol” and Ryanair urged the airports to take more responsibility for this safety issue by:
Ryanair has already taken a number of measures to prevent disruptive behaviour on its UK flights, and customers are not permitted to consume their own duty-free purchases on board. Customers flying from Glasgow Prestwick and Manchester to Alicante and Ibiza are no longer permitted to bring duty free alcohol on board the aircraft, and those who have purchased duty free alcohol will be asked to put it into the hold or leave their purchases behind.
