MOSCOW, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. An air passenger might be fined 200,000 dollars for violation of safety rules on board aircraft, Deputy director for safety of flights of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Arkady Merkulov told an international conference held at the Federal Air Transport Agency on Tuesday.
The fine will be charged for different offences: from smoking on board to using physical force against an air crew as result of which a chief pilot might have to make an emergency landing to force the person responsible out, Merkulov said. The expenditures on an air hooligan might vary from 10,000 to 200,000 dollars, Mekulov added. Since2007 until 2011 the number of such incidents had grown five-tenfold per every thousand flight hours, the IATA representative said.
The IATA has issued instructions to air crews how they should handle such passengers and what measures should be taken to prevent such incidents in future. Besides, IATA has adopted certain standards to this effect, but these standards might be realized only if states adopt a legal basis which meets the requirements stipulated by these standards, Merkulov added.
