Schipol Airport Is Now Tracking Drunk Passengers

Schipol Airport Is Now Tracking Drunk Passengers
Ryan Boyd

Catering staff management at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) plans to introduce steps to reduce the number of drunken passengers aboard flights who cause problems for flight crew. The airport’s 2,800 catering employees have received training for spotting signs of drunkenness in passengers and phoning to warn airlines of belligerent passengers.

“Some of them get noisy and disruptive and cause a commotion on board, which is a nightmare for flight crews. We can’t tolerate dangerous situations,” said Walter Seib of HMSHost.

    I suspect what doesn’t help the situation is the long layovers at KLM for nervous UK travellers connecting to/from long haul flights at AMS. If demand picks up and KLM introduce lunch-time flights to/from UK regional airports, i suspect this problem will fade away.
