On-board booze ban by Ryanair

RYANAIR has announced that passengers flying to Ibiza this summer will be unable to bring alcohol bought in Duty Free shops on to the plane.

The budget airline, not always popular with travellers, plans to crack down on drunken, on-board behaviour, which will surely win back supporters.

All alcohol bought in Duty Free will need to be packed into luggage, which will then be carried in the hold.

Ryanair said in an email to passengers heading to Ibiza: “Any alcohol purchased in airport shops, or elsewhere, must be packed carefully in a suitable item of cabin baggage, which will be tagged at the gate and then placed in the aircraft hold, free of charge.

It also warned that “boarding gates will be carefully monitored, with any passengers showing signs of anti-social behaviour or attempting to conceal alcohol, denied travel without refund or compensation.”

However, there was no mention of not being able to purchase alcohol during the flight! But if the scheme goes well, perhaps it will be expanded to other flights to the Canaries.
