Britain’s new aviation minister has pledged a crackdown on alcohol sales at airports after dozens of drunken Brits caused havoc on flights, with one man allegedly drinking a whole bottle of vodka before abusing fellow passengers.
Lord Ahmad has announced he will look into the way alcohol is sold in airports to ensure business travellers and families going on holiday feel “safe and secure.”
The peer will examine the timings during which alcohol is sold in airports and ways to prevent drunken passengers boarding planes. Ahmad denied he wants to “kill merriment altogether,” but insisted passengers need to be “responsible” when flying.
