Proposed alcohol ban would affect all Ibiza travelers if approved
The party may soon be limited to the island.
“We ask the central government and the European commission to ban the consumption of alcoholic drinks on flights and in airports,” states Pilar Carbonell, the head of tourism for Ibiza’s local government. “The aim of the measure is to improve passenger security and also that of the security forced in planes and airports in our islands, who are often faced with drunk passengers,” Carbonell elaborated.
While alcohol restrictions and even bans are already in existence and currently able to be applied to Ibiza bound flights at the given airline’s discretion, Carbonell’s pursuit of an alcohol ban would affect all flights entering the island, leaving airlines no choice but to adhere to the liquor block is enacted. But the limitations wouldn’t stop there—Carbonell is also requesting a ban on the sale of alcohol in airport terminals to those heading to the Mediterranean island. The European Union has yet to comment on the proposed ban.
