Home Office to consult on regulations on alcohol consumption at airports 13th June 2018

It has been reported that the Home Office will “imminently” launch a consultation on regulating alcohol consumption at airports.


According to the report, the UK government “is about to begin a consultation period with stakeholders connected with alcohol consumption at airports. The aim is to determine whether regulation of airside drinking is required following a sharp rise in alcohol-related disorder on flights.”


The reports stated the consultation is likely to start “within a month” with a Home Office spokesperson saying: “We will issue a Call for Evidence to assess the impact that an extension of the Licensing Act to airside premises at airports in England and Wales could have on reducing alcohol-related disruptive passenger behaviour. Most UK air passengers behave responsibly when flying, but any disruptive or drunk behaviour is entirely unacceptable.”
