Alcohol-testing on pilots


You might remember the TV programme where British Airways pilots and cabin crew were filmed by hidden cameras, drinking lots of alcohol shortly before a flight? Since then, there have been several more incidents involving drunken pilots turning up at work, though seldom near passengers.

Swedish police haven’t either been able to alcohol test staff unless there have been reasonable suspicions of drunkenness.  

But now a new law has come into force, which means that the police can carry out tests, where and whenever they like, on air companies’ staff before departure. The consequences for anyone caught will be felt in a judicial sense. Having more than 0.2 parts of alcohol per thousand will lead to a month in prison. For very serious drunkenness (more than 1.0 part per thousand) the sentence can be up to two years in prison.
