Balearics demand alcohol ban on flights


Tourism chief asks Spain and EU for booze ban
Tourism authorities in Spain’s Balearic Islands want alcohol to be banned on all flights to and from the islands, in an effort to stop visitors’ bad behaviour.
Tourism chief Pilar Carbonell has asked the Spanish government and the European Commission to ban booze from flights and airports to “tackle antisocial tourism” and “guarantee security”.
She added: “The aim of the measure is to improve passenger security and also that of security forces in planes and airports in our islands, who are often faced with drunk passengers.”
Drink-fuelled incidents on flights to and from the party islands of Ibiza and Mallorca are common. Ryanair has already banned booze from its Ibiza flights from the UK and conducts searches.
