Budget Airline Jet2.com have banned the sale of alcohol on early morning flights in a bid to reduce disruptive behaviour on its flights.
Commenting on the ban, Jet2’s Managing Director Phil Ward said: “We have decided to follow up very quickly on my comments made last week – by taking positive action to allow the millions of customers and families who fly with us to travel with confidence and have a great experience with Jet2.com.
“We believe that stopping sales of alcohol before 8am on our morning flights is an effective way to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and comfortable journey.
“We understand that we’re the first of the European airlines to take this bold step and call upon industry partners in airports to also trade responsibly.”
The ban will come into effect on Monday, 8th August.
