China`s airline industry is experiencing a booming development as one hand, on the other hand the incidents involving unruly behaviour on board aircraft also becomes a growing concern for the whole industry. The thesis examines the basic issues concerning the unruly behaviour, such as definition of unruly behaviour, the impact and root causes of unruly behaviour. Then it focuses on the China`s legal sources governing the problem of unruly behaviour. Generally speaking, China`s legislation with this respect is systematic and self-contained, except some minor shortcomings which need to be revised. Finally the thesis holds the view that the preventative measures jointly contributed by all the parties concerned are something more important than the legislation itself.
