A YouGov survey on the public’s attitudes towards alcohol being sold in airports has shown mixed results.

A poll of c 5,500 people which asked the question ‘would you support or oppose a ban on selling alcoholic drinks at airports’ found that 43% would oppose and 38% support, with the rest undecided.

The results showed that men were more likely to oppose the ban and that Scotland was the region with the most vociferous objections.

The poll follows a campaign from the aviation industry aimed at tackling problem drinking. The One Too Many campaign involves reminding passengers they can be denied boarding if inebriated, with potential penalties including flight bans, fines or prosecution.
