(ECNS) - The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) is considering putting black marks on the names of unruly airline passengers and punishing those who behave badly, China News Service reported on Thursday.

The action comes in response to an embarrassing incident this month in which frustrated passengers on a China Eastern flight opened emergency exits after a delay.

In an attempt to strengthen airline safety and curb unruly acts by passengers, the CAAC is considering measures to blacklist passengers involved in air rage incidents, and punish brawling passengers in accordance with the law.

The CAAC is also stepping up efforts with Chinese airlines and airports to improve their ability to respond to emergencies, and to also publicize aviation safety guidelines and advocate good travel behavior.
