RYANAIR passengers travelling from Glasgow Prestwick to the Balearic Island Ibiza will no longer be able to drink alcohol on board.
The Irish airline accredited the new measure to safety reasons, according to Scottish paper the Daily Record.
Ryanair has decided to ban alcohol after several incidents involving inappropriate behaviour from intoxicated passengers on this particular route.
“Customers will not be allowed to carry alcohol on board and all cabin baggage will be searched at boarding gates. Any alcohol purchased in airport shops or elsewhere must be packed in a suitable item of baggage, which will be tagged and placed in the aircraft hold free of charge.
“Customers attempting to conceal alcohol will be denied travel without refund or compensation,” read the email sent on Sunday (April 5) to warn passengers.
Back in September, a video was released showing drunken passengers swearing and singing on board and in 2013, the pilot of the flight from Prestwick to Ibiza decided to make an emergency landing at the Beauvais airport (near Paris) after 14 intoxicated Scotsmen became out of control and had to be taken off the plane.
Ryanair said: “The comfort and safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and we will not tolerate unruly behaviour at any time.”
