Obscure legal Facts by Arome Abu

The Nigerian law prohibits passengers from entering an aircraft when drunk or to get drunk aboard an aircraft.

The Nigerian law does not prohibit consumption of alcoholic beverages, infact, most airlines, especially international ones operate onboard lounge for serving alcoholic beverages with and without charge.

Pilots, flight attendants and other crew members are however, prohibited from consuming alcohol while on duty.

In some climes, pilots are restricted from flying aircraft within 8 hours of consuming alcohol or if they have an alcohol concentration of 0.04 percent or greater.

See Regulation 39 of the Civil Aviation (Air Navigation) Regulations
