Will passengers face booze ban at airports?

Published on : Thursday, April 6, 2017

alcohol on planeA new report from a parliamentary select committee demanded for a restricted rule on the sale and consumption of alcohol at airports.

 

According to the report from the House of Lords, it has been highlighted that airports are expressly left out of the Licensing Act 2003. This means,  many of the normal alcohol restrictions do not apply to the airports. The report read that  “no one travelling on an international flight can fail to notice that, once they have gone through customs, control of the sale of alcohol seems to be relaxed, and the permitted hours even more so”.

 

Added to this is the little restriction which comes to when alcohol can be sold at airports, there is also a problem with who it is being sold to. Budget airline Jet2 contributed evidence in support of the findings of the report, which found that over half of all passenger disruptions on flights were as a result of alcohol consumption.
