China’s Aviation Authority to blacklist Passengers behaving badly on Flights

The Civil Aviation Administration of China said a system for blacklisting poorly behaved travellers would be ready soon and will be introduced with the help of airlines, travel agents and airports, the state-run news agency Xinhua reported.

The move comes after a series of widely reported incidents of unruly behaviour by Chinese air passengers. A flight from Thailand to China in December had to turn back after a Chinese passenger threw hot water at the cabin staff because she was not happy with the service. The woman threatened to jump out of the aircraft and started punching the windows, Xinhua reported.

The China National Tourism Administration announced last month that it would keep records of badly behaved air passengers for two years.

“China’s image has already been tarnished,” the administration said on its website at the time.

The actions of badly-behaved tourists have caused many people to blush with shame and people who behaved badly overseas needed to learn a lesson, the statement said.

Overseas travel has boomed in recent years among increasingly affluent Chinese, who have become the world’s biggest spenders on travel since 2012, according to the UN World Tourism Organisation.
