Airports And Airlines To Cut Out Disruptive Behaviour


Airlines and airports are launching a campaign to try and cut down on the growing problem of disruptive passengers - which is often fuelled by alcohol.

The number of incidents went up by a third across Europe between 2017 and 2018, and officials expect the same increase this year.

They're reminding people of the legal consequences, and are trying to cut down on people turning up drunk for their flights.

Head of Corporate Affairs with the Irish Aviation Authority, Paul Brandon says air rage can be dangerous and terrifying:

"The vast majority of flights passed off without any incident. The impacts of disruptive behavior can be very distressing for passengers and flight crew and indeed can put the safety of a flight at risk," said Paul Brandon, Head of Corporate Affairs with the Irish Aviation Authority.

"That's why, we in the Irish Aviation Authority, which is the aviation safety regulator for Ireland have taken this action to bring the industry together and take a unified approach."

"Already you can be prevented from getting on a flight if you don't present yourself in a suitable manner. But, the message isn't probably out there for passengers.

"So what we are doing is putting the message out there strongly, that you have to present for a flight in a particular way and that if you do present in a way that is going to cause disruption, you can either not be allowed on the flight.

"Or if you cause disruption on a flight, then there are consequences when you land."
