RYANAIR is set to ban booze on flights between Glasgow and Ibiza after video emerged purporting to show passengers chanting and swearing on board one of the budget airline’s planes.

The alcohol ban will be limited to flights between Glasgow Prestwick and the Balearic island, with a notice from the Irish firm outlining the new regulations.

A notice is expected to say: “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.”

The move comes after a video appeared online in September last year, showing apparently tipsy passengers stamping their feet, swearing and chanting on board a flight from Prestwick to Ibiza.

A spokesperson for Ryanair confirmed that, following consultation with passengers and the airport, travellers would not be permitted to bring duty free alcohol onto the aircrafts.

The spokesperson added: “Those who have purchased duty free alcohol will be asked to either place their purchases in their cabin baggage and into the hold at the boarding gate, or leave their purchases behind.

“The comfort and safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and we will not tolerate unruly behaviour at any time.”
