Yorkshire-based airline Jet 2 is boosting customer satisfaction and safety on board its flights by banning the sale of alcohol on-board before 8:00am.
In a commitment to tackle disruptive and abusive behaviour on flights the ground-breaking move will be introduced from Monday 8 August across all of its bases which include Leeds Bradford Airport, Newcastle Airport and Birmingham Airport.
The announcement further supports the airlines' Onboard Together campaign which aims to reduce incidences of disruptive behaviour on its flights.

Phil Ward, managing director of Jet2.com: “Disruptive behaviour on flights and at airports as a result of excessive alcohol consumption is unfair and unacceptable, and is something Jet2.com has been working hard to reduce for the past year through our ‘Onboard Together’ campaign.
“We fly millions of customers every year including many families and we want to ensure that their holidays are the best they can be, without disruption from a small minority of selfish, drunken people. We welcome comments from the Aviation Minister, Lord Ahmad, regarding the way alcohol is sold in airports and we offer him our full support.”
