Will US travel ban lift have ripple effect on international restrictions?
Perillo Tours CEO Steve Perillo shares his positive outlook for the future of travel amid COVID-19.
Although the Federal Aviation Administration's zero-tolerance policy has made significant progress lowering the unruly passenger rate since its implementation in January, the agency says there is still much more work to be done.
Next month, the FAA says it will host "unruly-passenger working sessions with key aviation stakeholders" and ask members of the aviation industry to share best practices and identify additional steps that can be taken to continue to reduce the unruly passenger rate.
FAA ASKS AIRLINES TO ‘TAKE MORE ACTION’ IN CURBING UNRULY PASSENGER INCIDENTS
As of Tuesday, there have been a total of 4,385 unruly passenger incidents in 2021, with 3,199 of them related to masks. For the week ending Sept. 12, there were approximately six unruly passenger incidents per every 10,000 flights, a roughly 50% drop from early 2021 but more than twice as high as the end of 2020.
Since the June launch of the FAA's public awareness campaign, which includes memes and two public service announcements, the unruly passenger rate has fallen approximately 30%.
