- 25 men offloaded as Jet2.com continues its crack down on disruptive passengers

Leading leisure airline, Jet2.com, last night (24th April) offloaded a stag group of 25 males from its Prague to Glasgow flight due to their disruptive behaviour.

The decision was made to offload the rowdy group as they were boarding, due to their offensive attitude and continued use of foul and abusive language. Police were called to escort the party off the aircraft after some of the men reportedly became abusive and intimidating towards our cabin crew.

Phil Ward, managing director of Jet2.com, said: “Our Onboard Together initiative supports our crew to take appropriate action to stamp out disruptive passenger behaviour on our flights, in order to protect both customers and fellow colleagues. Many of our customers on this flight were concerned about the group’s behaviour which is why we took decisive action to stop them from travelling. We will not let an unruly few stop people from having an enjoyable flight experience.”

Since Jet2.com launched Onboard Together more than 500 passengers have been refused travel due to disruptive behaviour.

Phil added: “Disruptive passenger behaviour is an ongoing issue that needs tackling for the good of the vast majority of all customers, as well as my crew and colleagues. We are working closely with airlines, airports, trade associations and other industry partners to create a consistent and robust response to this issue. We are also actively consulting with government bodies and MPs to make them aware of the problem.”
