MAJORCA WARNING: Police crack down on airports selling alcohol to boozy Britons
Airports at Majorca and Ibiza are the main targets to prevent drunken fights erupting between British tourists.
Union bosses have accused airlines and Spanish airport authority AENA of putting profit before safety.
Therefore the regulations to be put forward are based on the sale of beverages at airport bars in the Balearic Islands and planes to the destinations.
Anyone already drunk could see themselves banned from any further alcoholic purchases.
The government is hoping to clamp down on it to improve the reputation that comes with the popular party resorts.
Jose Maria Manso, President of the Professional Police Union (SPP) in the Balearic Islands, said in an open letter: “We cannot understand how smoking is banned for health reasons yet an airport binge with a serious knock-on effect for everyone’s safety is guaranteed.”
It also comes in light of a recent case regarding two Brits who were part of a compensation scam.
Yet it emerged that they had instead consumed a vast amount of alcohol whilst on holiday in Majorca.
