I think you may find it also has something to do with insurance. Effectively if you are travelling in a group (such as a school group, sporting group etc) you may not be covered if you are not wearing the uniform and this covers all forms of travel whether it be flying, in a car, in a bus etc.
I think it's more to do with teacher group control and/or school policy for behaviour purposes- I doubt insurance plays a factor at all.
I have previously travelled in a group environment where we were required to wear uniform for travelling purposes for insurance reasons, hence my reply. While it probably wont apply to all group travel it applies to some
My school has two trips to Africa this year, and those on the big one have to wear uniform, but for my small one, we don't.
