Air passengers may soon be given a dress code to follow before they board their flight, it has been suggested.

People who have checked travel money rates before heading to the airport to embark on their holidays have been urged to wear sensible attire, as certain airlines have recently refused to carry some passengers who were deemed to be wearing inappropriate clothing, Fox News reports.

This has led to calls from FlyersRights.com for companies to issue their customers with a list of dos and don'ts to avoid any repeat incidents in the future and save Aussies the cost of being ejected from a service.

Executive director of the organisation Kate Hanni told the news provider there is a lack of consistency over the issue.

"People aren't mind readers. They don't know what that flight attendant's going to want to see when you get on a plane," she was quoted as saying.

Such instances – although rare at the moment – could become more of a problem as more Aussies are expected to head abroad in the next five years, according to IBISWorld.ADNFCR-1761-ID-801223244-ADNFCR
