The two United Airlines pilots were arrested at the Glasgow Airport in Scotland on Saturday morning after allegedly failing a breath test before boarding flights on their way to Newark, N. J..

Police Scotland said the men, between the ages of 45 and 61, were arrested in the context of transportation security, the act, which relates to the role of intoxication and impairment losses for the airline industry.

Authorities say the officers were called to the airport at about 7:35 a.m., and the two men have been arrested prior to boarding United Airlines flight 162.

The flight was scheduled to depart from Glasgow Airport at 9:00 a.m., and was canceled after the arrests.

“We regret that our connecting flight from GLA to EWR, UA162, has been canceled because of crew availability,” United tweeted.

Under Scots law, the legal alcohol limit for pilots, navigators and other flight personnel to be subject to breath tests, it is less than half the price of the drink-drive limit for car drivers in the country and on the roads.
