Alcohol is on the up when it comes to your flights.

In recent news alcohol is causing more problems both pre-flight and during flights. This has been causing disturbances for some time but due to figures reaching near 450 these past 2 years of people being held on suspicion of being intoxicated before and during flight. As well as this, there has been a 50% increase in drunken arrests in one year. In 2014 alone 238 million passengers passed through the UK airports, so think of how many people would be affected should you chose to drink at an airport or during flight? Selected air ports have released a zero-tolerance policy (including airport retailers) to advise the passengers who have bought alcohol not to consume it before boarding their flights as well as during them. If you or someone else become intoxicated who’s saying they don’t cause serious harm to themselves or others during take-off they can’t just park the plane your thousands of feet in the air The message isn’t disregarding the buying of alcohol it is just aimed at the consumption before and during your flight. Airport staff understand that you’re on your way to a nice holiday and want to ‘get the party started’ early, but think of others around you, take a moment to think how you would feel if someone was drunk/drinking on your next flight you wouldn’t want it spoiled now would you??? Airports aren’t looking to “kill your holiday” they are thinking of all others at the airports and on the plane during flight. Should you be assumed drunk before or during you flight you can be sentenced to a maximum of 2 years imprisonment… So, think before you fly, buy if you like but don’t drink till your off the planes, out of the air ports and only once you reach your destination. Do you have your own experience of this or similar? Why not let us...

Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia

Aug 19, 16 Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia

Posted by in Area News, Featured News

The Government of Indonesia is to discuss whether a bill of Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia should be passed. Tourism experts have predicted that this will have a dangerous and significant impact on the tourism in Indonesia, especially the tourist popular Indonesian Island of Bali. Producers of alcohol and business who rely on the sales of alcohol have also backed up the threat of loss of tourism if the bill of alcohol to be banned in Indonesia is passed. The bill of law to ban distribution, production and consumption of alcohol in Indonesia was introduced by the United Development Party and the Prosperous Justice Party which are the two highest ranking Islamic dominated parties. The Indonesian House of Representatives have now taken the bill under consideration and will undertake many steps to decide its final conclusion if alcohol is to be banned in Indonesia. If the bill of alcohol to be banned in Indonesia is to pass, it will only apply to drinks with over 1% of alcohol in them. Furthermore, this will be the first law of its kind in Muslim-majority Indonesia. Only exceptions to ban of alcohol is for travellers, religious rituals and customary activities. But even the chance of banning the substance has the tourism and hospitality industries rallying together in repute and outrage against the consideration of the law. It is a strong understanding that industries who benefit from the production and distribution along with the consumption of alcohol will receive a crippling and even maybe a fatal blow. Breweries, venues and resorts will be caught by the tidal wave of effects due to the law and hundreds of thousands of jobs are also at risk. The consideration of the bill for Alcohol to be banned in Indonesia comes after a previous bill was passed for alcohol not being sold in mini marts, many of the population fear that this law may lead to some more changes which will affect their way of life and livelihood. What do you...
