AN AIRPORT in London has issued a warning to boozing Brits before jetting off on their holidays this winter.
London Stansted has warned drinking passengers that they will not be allowed to fly if they're "deemed unfit," after drinking too much in the departure lounge.
In a Tweet, the airport reminded passengers about the One Too Many Campaign:"Did you know that if you are deemed unfit to fly, you may be denied boarding and you could face up to two years in jail for disrupting a flight?"
The scheme encourages airport passengers to drink and behave responsibly, otherwise passengers will be hit with a hefty price tag.
Intoxicated passengers on planes who disrupt flights could get fined £5,000 and a possible jail sentence of up to two years.
Drunk passengers causing trouble mid-air that results in the plane being diverted can be fine up to £80,00.

If a flight is cancelled because of boozy behaviour, the passenger responsible can be met with an airline ban.
And even if you don't cause any trouble, you can also be denied boarding if you've been drinking.
Despite the industry's attempts, there have been many instances of drunk people causing trouble planes such as a boozy woman being escorted off a Ryanair flight after allegedly telling an air steward she would "put her in hospital".
Sun Online Travel's resident flight attendant blogger recently revealed those social media videos of drunk passengers partying on flights are no laughing matter.

They said: "Because so much is going on, the visibility will be reduced and that could easily lead to further problems. Communication is vital between crew members and we need to be able to see each other all the time.
"If we can't, something awful could happen and we wouldn't be able to act in time.
"That might not even necessarily be something to do with the party either. The drinking and dancing could be the perfect distraction for someone else with much more sinister ideas to carry out something much worse.
"That's a worst case scenario, but you absolutely never know what's going to happen.
"The party could also lead to damage to the aircraft because they were hitting the seats, hitting the doors and hitting the windows."
