Air Serbia joins alliance against unruly passengers

NEWS FLASH


Air Serbia has joined “Not on my Flight”, a campaign launched by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in order to reduce the number of unruly passengers on all European flights and protect the passenger’s right to a peaceful travel experience. Smooth operations on a number of flights in Europe are disrupted by passengers displaying unruly behaviour. At least 70% of these incidents involve some form of aggression. In 2018, the aviation industry experienced an increase of unruly behaviour by 34% when compared to the year before. Even though the number of unruly passengers is very small considering the total number of people flying, the impact of their actions can have a disproportionate impact both on the smooth operation of the flight and on fellow passengers. Disruptive behaviour, such as excessive drinking and intoxication, smoking in the lavatory, verbal or physical violence towards the crew and fellow passengers or not complying with the crew’s instructions introduces an unnecessary risk to the normal operation of a flight by distracting the crew from its duties, and might also lead to significant delays.

Air Serbia becomes the first national airline from the former Yugoslavia to join the campaign. Other carriers taking part include Air Baltic, Air France, Thomas Cook Airlines, Condor, Eastern Airways, easyJet, Euroalantic Airways, Evelop, Flybe, Icelandair, KLM, Loganair, Luxair, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Sky Express, Stobart Air, Transavia, Ukraine International Airlines, Wamos Air and Wizz Air.

  3. Pointless. There Are already laws and regulations in place that cover these behaviors. Do not forget after septembar 11 attacs, the Canon vreme became de facto police force in flight. Worldwide.

    1. Never claimed to know everything and to be always right but really know a lot about civil aviation. But don't know what Canon vreme is. Typo? Cabin crew?

  4. Who is going to protect the passangers from rude AirSerbia flight attendance? Who is protecting me when they deliberately kick me with food trolley in my knee? Who is protecting me when AirSerbia looses my suitcase?

    1. You shall make sure your knee is not in the aisle while the cabin crew is rolling the cart out as it is impossible to see it.

    2. Who is going to protect me from Air Serbia haters? Air Serbia flight attendants were always nicer and friendlier to me than Austrian FAs. Lufthansa lost my bag once, never recovered it and I had to fight to get small fee instead.
