Alyn is calling for a change in European law to ensure that all EU airports provide safe and free drinking water to passengers.
Please sign up to the petition below supporting Alyn's call.
Continuing security restrictions currently mean that passengers can't carry liquids through security and have limited options for keeping themselves hydrated airside.
Research conducted by Alyn’s office has revealed that even in Scotland there is only patchy availability of water fountains and often passengers are left with no alternative but to purchase the over-priced bottled water from the airport shops or expensive food outlets.
Although in Scotland, thanks to the licensing laws, passengers can get tap water from bars in airports; this is not a workable solution for all, especially parents with young children.
In an attempt to rectify this situation, Alyn has written to the European Commissioner for Transport, Siim Kallas, and the European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, Tonio Borg, urging them to introduce a law forcing all European airports to provide facilities for good quality drinking water.
