Alcohol testing on flight and cabin crew
As of February 14, 2021, the European Authorities will begin to carry out random alcohol testing on flight and cabin crew members during ramp inspection. EASA’s regulation is common to all Member States.
EASA's updated ramp inspection manual is available on its website and can be accessed through the following link:
Likewise, each Member State may also apply its own national legislation. In the Spanish case, the random alcohol testing will be carried out as part of the SANA / SAFA / SACA ramp inspections, by a ramp inspector, an AESA official.
The tests will always be carried out after the presentation on the flight. The refusal to take the test equates to a positive result, with the same administrative and legal consequences.
