UK Airport Car Parks Call For All Airlines To Adopt Strict Checks On Intoxicated Passengers


Over the past 12 months there have been a big increase in the number of passengers who have become abusive to airline crew. UK Airport Car Parks are calling for airlines to introduce stricter checks to stop passengers boarding planes who are drunk or tipsy.

This week Thomas Cook reported a passenger was removed from a flight from Cuba to Manchester after a drunken female passenger became abusive. As the passenger was escorted off the plane she shouted to the passengers she hoped the plane crashes, leaving children upset and parents shocked. UK Airport Car Parks who help people finding cheaper airport car parking has called for more action to avoid this type of behaviour.

UK Airport Car Parks who reported the story on their blog ( would like to see more checks put into place at the boarding gate. The car parking experts believe enough is not being done to stop people who are drunk boarding an aircraft and feel the safety of a flight is put at risk.

Chris Fryer from UK Airport Car Parks said: “This year there has been many cases of passengers being escorted off the plane for their abusive behaviour and now airlines must understand the problem is not going away.”

The car parking company would like to see all airlines around the world come together and come up with a standard procedure to spot people who have drunk too much. They believe by offering more training to check-in crew and boarding gate staff, less disruptions would be caused on board flights.
