Airlines Are Banning Alcoholic Drinks on Planes

Due to coronavirus concerns.

As the world is slowly beginning to open back up after strict lockdown restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, airlines are having to take extra precautionary measures to prevent the spread, including halting their alcoholic drinks service.

CNN reports that the ban comes from the industry’s goal to reduce crew and passenger interaction, avoiding potential touch. In addition to the ban, face masks are also made compulsory throughout the entire duration of the flight.

In Europe, Easyjet will allow passengers to bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks, whilst British Airways will halt alcoholic drink service on short-haul flights in Economy class.
