Alcohol ban on flights requested by Balearic Islands
July 13 , 2017
Authorities in Balearic Islands, where world famous party resorts such as Mallorca and Ibiza are located, have requested both European Union and Spain to impose a ban on alcohol during flights as well as airports. This is part of the islands battle against what has been termed “anti-social tourism”. Recently there were several incidents of sexual antics fuelled by alcohol and drunken brawls on flights to this archipelago and they received much mainstream media attention. The requests have come after this spate of unsavory incidents.
