Police are clamping down on alcohol sales in airports to prevent drunken fights between Brits
Popular Spanish resorts are currently trying to clean up their streets and crack down on illicit activity.
Just recently, Malaga issued a new 64-law statement regarding travellers who regularly cause chaos and fights in the streets of the town.
However, the Spanish government have also made a move to prevent Brits from getting drunk by tackling the problem at the airport.
The police are now clamping down on the sale of alcohol at airports to any holidaymakers who are already drunk.
Airports at Majorca and Ibiza are the main targets to prevent drunken fights erupting between British tourists.
Union bosses have accused airlines and Spanish airport authority AENA of putting profit before safety.
Therefore the regulations to be put forward are based on the sale of beverages at airport bars in the Balearic Islands and planes to the destinations.
Anyone already drunk could see themselves banned from any further alcoholic purchases.
Boozy Brits are creating fights in popular Spanish resorts
We cannot understand how smoking is banned for health reasons yet an airport binge with a serious knock-on effect for everyone’s safety is guaranteed.
The government is hoping to clamp down on it to improve the reputation that comes with the popular party resorts.
Jose Maria Manso, President of the Professional Police Union (SPP) in the Balearic Islands, said in an open letter: “We cannot understand how smoking is banned for health reasons yet an airport binge with a serious knock-on effect for everyone’s safety is guaranteed.”
It also comes in light of a recent case regarding two Brits who were part of a compensation scam.
Yet it emerged that they had instead consumed a vast amount of alcohol whilst on holiday in Majorca.
Spanish police hope to prevent fights and by stopping airports selling alcohol to drunk Brits
A video recently emerged this week showing the darker side of the popular resorts.
Two girls were filmed running naked along the streets, as police now say they are searching for them due to the illicit activity.
However, in light of recent attacks, some areas of Spain have updated the terror advice.
Ibiza is a popular spot, therefore, could be a target for British holidaymakers.
