Over 8,800 flights are expected to travel through UK airspace today one what is set to be the busiest flying day of the year so far.

Many families will be jetting off across the world after many schools officially broke up for the six-week summer holiday.

Ahead of the expected traffic chaos campaign group One Too Many is reminding passengers to ensure make sure they travel responsibly, avoiding serious consequences and penalties.

Earlier this week 25-year-old Chloe Haines Berkshire was given a £85,000 fine and lifetime ban from airline Jet2 for “extremely disruptive behaviour".

The incident resulted in two RAF jets being called to divert and escort to Stansted Airport on Saturday, June 22.

The One Too Many campaign recently relaunched for Summer 2019 with the support of Aviation Minister Baroness Vere, building on the back of a successful inaugural year.

Four new airports have also joined the campaign, demonstrating substantial growth since the campaign’s 2018 debut with ten pilot airport partners.

Gatwick, Heathrow, Norwich and 14 other airports in the UK are part of the new air travel campaign.

Passengers travelling in these airports will see warnings about disruptive behaviour posted on digital display screens, in retail and food and drink outlets.

The social media campaign last year reached over eight million passengers across Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram.

They will remind passengers that the penalties can range from being denied boarding, fines of up to £80,000 or jail for the most serious offences.

Speaking on behalf of airport retailers, Francois Bourienne, chair of the UK Travel Retail Forum said: “We were delighted to bring the campaign back for the second summer in a row following praise from the Government in the Aviation 2050 Green Paper, in which it was highlighted as an example of industry best practise.

“It is extremely encouraging to be joined by three new airports, almost doubling the number of participants since launch.

“With record numbers travelling through UK airspace this summer, we urge passengers to remember to fly responsibly and begin the party at their destination rather than during their journey as disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated.

Anyone found to be disruptive will face serious consequences. Do not be the one to ruin the experience of others, including fellow passengers and staff, in the airport or onboard the flight.”

Speaking on behalf of airports, Karen Dee, chief executive of the Airport Operators Association commented: “This weekend will kickstart an extremely busy time for airports across the UK. More so than ever airport and airline staff will be prepared to prevent or deal with disruptive incidents.

“There is no place for disruptive behaviour in the aviation sector. Thanks to the One Too Many campaign and airports’ individual action plans, we have already seen signs of declining numbers of disruptive passengers in the most recent data from the Civil Aviation Authority.

“The entire industry, including the newly joined airports, are committed to acting together to see this decrease even further.”
