Air Busan to Tighten Drinking Rules for Workers


Air Busan announced yesterday that it will enhance its workplace environment to prevent employees from working under the influence of alcohol this year.

The company said in a statement that pilots, flight attendants, aircraft maintenance managers, and mechanics will be checked for alcohol level in their bodies before they report to work.

It said that if an employee’s alcohol level exceeds the standards, a report will be sent to their managers via a messaging service. It added that the employee will automatically be barred from working under such circumstances.

Air Busan plans to apply this system sometime in April this year. The company said the screening will effectively prevent alcohol-related mishaps occurring in the company.

The airline is the first to adopt such a stringent system among the country’s full-service low-cost carriers.
