Ryanair bans booze on notorious party flight from Glasgow to Ibiza

Airline puts brakes on alcohol-fuelled bad behaviour onboard


Passengers on a notoriously rowdy Ryanair service from Glasgow Prestwick Airport to Ibiza have been told they will not be able to take alcohol on flights from now on.

It is the only one of its flights that such a rule is being enforced on.

According to the Daily Record, the airline said in an email: "Customers will not be allowed to carry alcohol on board and all cabin baggage will be searched at boarding gates.

"Any alcohol purchased in airport shops or elsewhere must be packed in a suitable item of baggage, which will be tagged and placed in the aircraft hold free of charge. Customers attempting to conceal alcohol will be denied travel without refund or compensation."

Ryanair added: "The comfort and safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and we will not tolerate unruly behaviour at any time."

Last September, the service hit the headlines when video emerged showing drunk passengers chanting, swearing and stamping their feet on the plane.

And, in 2013, the flight had to be diverted to Beauvais airport in Paris because of drunk passengers causing mayhem.

According to the Daily Mail, police said 14 men were thrown off the plane in France and were so drunk they thought they had landed in Ibiza.
