Congress proposes no-fly list for unruly passengers

Friday, 31 Mar, 2023 1

A bill has been tabled to create a national no-fly list for unruly passengers.

The bipartisan Protection from Abusive Passengers Act would enable the TSA to ‘set up and manage a program’ to store details of abusive passengers.

The no-fly list would be  for people fined or convicted of assaulting crew members and other serious acts.

“We must do more to protect employees and the traveling public,” said bill sponsor Sen. Jack Reed.

“Passengers must follow the rules and not commit acts of violence.”

The TSA would make a determination on how long a passenger would be banned from flying.

It would be based on the severity of the crime.

In 2022, the FAA logged almost 2,500 unruly passenger reports.
