LONDON, England – Ryanair has called time on passengers drinking booze on a notoriously rowdy flight from Scotland to the Spanish party island of Ibiza.
The airline told passengers traveling from Glasgow Prestwich to the Mediterranean island that they will no longer be able to take alcohol on board.
The route has won a rowdy reputation for its boozed-up passengers in the last couple of years.
Last September the flight hit the headlines when a 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, near Paris, because of drunk passengers causing trouble.
Airline bosses yesterday confirmed it is the ONLY one of its flights hit by the new restrictions.
An email being sent to passengers flying to Ibiza states: “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 behavior at any time.”
