They are one of the biggest annoyances in modern aviation: the “unruly passengers”. In other words, rowdy passengers who, due to their behavior, disturb order on the plane or at the airport and, in the worst case, even pose a security risk.

Scheduled airlines must report serious incidents to the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (Bazl). In Switzerland, this applies to Swiss, Edelweiss, Helvetic Airways, Chair Airlines and Easyjet Switzerland. The current figures from the Bazl are available at a glance. In most cases, problem passengers violate Art. 91 of the Aviation Act: for example, by smoking in the aircraft toilet, disobeying orders from the cabin crew or disturbing order through conspicuous and abusive behavior. But the Corona measures also regularly caused trouble on the planes.
