Fit to Fly report recommends action to reduce alcohol-related harm occurring in airports and aeroplanes

A new report by the Institute of Alcohol Studies (IAS) and the European Alcohol Policy Alliance (EUROCARE) has made recommendations to address alcohol-related harm occurring in airports and aeroplanes. The report recommended: 

  • Better licensing regimes in airports, including, in the UK, the application of the Licensing Act so that premises after security are required to follow the same legislation as premises in the rest of the country
  • Alcohol consumption at airports to be restricted to bars and restaurants, with alcohol bought at duty-free put in sealed containers and picked up by passengers at the gate or put directly into the hold of the aircraft.
  • Empowerment of local police forces at landing airports through the application of the Montreal Protocol.
