Mike Kane – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Mike Kane on 2016-01-14.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what work his Department has undertaken on helping develop a common reporting standard and collection method for incidents of disruptive passengers on flights departing from or arriving in the UK.

Mr Robert Goodwill

I and my officials have met with industry representatives to discuss the issue of disruptive passengers on a number of occasions in recent months. In these meetings we have encouraged the industry to work towards improved data collection on incident occurrence. This will help to ensure that both industry and government have a full picture of both the scale and nature of this issue.
