Disruptive Passengers On Airlines

EDM number 804 in 2015-16, proposed by Danny Kinahan on 02/12/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Anti-social behaviour and Aviation.

That this House recognises the figures published earlier this year by the UK Civil Aviation Authority which show that all airlines across the UK are seeing an increase in the level of disruptive behaviour on their flights, with alcohol intake often to blame; welcomes the steps already being taken by airlines, the British Air Transport Association, the Airport Operators Association and the police to build a consensus on how to tackle this problem, and acknowledges's leadership in its zero tolerance approach through the Onboard Together campaign; and calls on the Government to support the industry's zero tolerance approach to aggressive behaviour on flights, including by making tamper-proof duty free bags mandatory across UK airports, building on the existing trial with World Duty Free and at Manchester and Glasgow airports, launching a national industry-wide campaign so that passengers get a unified message on this subject no matter where they are flying from, or who they are flying with, and amending licensing regulations in tax free and airside areas to ensure all premises that sell alcohol are licensed in the same way as high street bars and restaurants.

This motion has been signed by a total of 6 MPs.
