CAA: Drunk and abusive behaviour 'totally unacceptable'

CAA: Drunk and abusive behaviour 'totally unacceptable'

The CAA has backed Abta’s advice, advising passengers allow time to get to airports. It has also called on holidaymakers to stick to their limits and avoid over-indulging before flights after it revealed earlier this month incidents of in-flight drunken behaviour are likely to hit record highs this year.


“The CAA continues to remind passengers drunken and abusive behaviour at an airport or on an aircraft is totally unacceptable and offenders can face a sentence of up to five years in jail,” said the authority in a statement.


CAA director Richard Stephenson added: “The aviation industry will be working hard this weekend helping everyone going on holiday to have a trouble-free journey.


“We therefore call on all passengers to act responsibly as drunken and abusive behaviour is totally unacceptable. Not only does it cause distress to fellow travellers, but it can jeopardise flight safety.


“Passengers need to know they will face the full weight of the law should they be found guilty of disorderly behaviour.”
