Ryanair bans alcohol on flights from Glasgow Prestwick airport to Ibiza over 'drunk' passengers causing disruptions

Video reportedly emerged in September showing apparently drunk passengers chanting, swearing and stamping their feet

Ryanair is banning alcohol on flights from a Glasgow airport to Ibiza after passengers were reportedly filmed swearing and chanting on board one of their planes.

The ban on alcohol is limited only to flights between Glasgow and Ibiza.

A notice from Ryanair bosses listed new restrictions for the passengers flying between the airport and the party resort.

The notice, which was seen by The Record, reportedly states: “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.”

A video emerged in September showing apparently drunk passengers chanting, swearing and stamping their feet.

In 2013, a Ryanair flight had to be diverted to France in September amid reports a group became disruptive on board. French media claimed the group had drunk copious amounts of duty free alcohol on board.

A spokesperson for Ryanair said in a statement: "Having consulted with our customers and the airport, passengers flying from Glasgow Prestwick to Ibiza will no longer be permitted to bring duty free alcohol on board the aircraft.

"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."
