When we fly, whether for business or for leisure, we like to be prepared. We like to know that we’ve packed all we need, and are ready for our journeys. However, there are some essentials we cannot prepare or pack. Passengers are unable to take liquids of more than 100ml through airport security, and this includes drinking water.
Recently, it’s come to light that over 50% of airports in the UK lack free drinking water for passengers (Money Saving Expert, 2017) in their passenger and departure lounges, meaning that if customers wish to remain hydrated once airside, they will have to purchase bottled water. This water is significantly increased in price, and can cost passengers up to £3.00 per bottle. Today, we’re discussing your rights when it comes to airport hydration, as well as why it’s so important!
For decades, fizzy drinks have dominated the bottled refreshment market. Visit any store refrigerator or cafe, and you’ll see shelves upon shelves of cola, lemonade, and sodas.

Between July 2016 and July 2017, bottled water sales in the UK outstripped cola sales, with 1.77 billion litres of bottled water being purchased, in comparison to 1.72 billion litres of cola, this is the first time in refreshment history that this has happened, and is the fourth consecutive year of double digit growth for the bottled water industry in the UK.

It’s an established fact that we use far more water than the earth is able to provide for us. Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water is available for human use (the majority being frozen, underground, or salt water), and yet each individual uses around 150 litres of water per day. With the earth’s population growing far quicker than is sustainable and global warming leading our rainfall to become increasingly erratic, it is everyone’s responsibility to cut water usage.
