Guidelines for Carrying Alcohol on Flights

Passengers traveling on domestic flights in India are allowed to carry up to 5 litres of alcoholic beverages in their checked-in baggage. The alcohol content must not exceed 70%. Here’s a breakdown of the rules:

Checked-in Baggage: Up to 5 litres of alcohol with a maximum alcohol content of 70% can be carried. This allowance applies to each adult passenger and cannot be transferred to others.

Hand Baggage: Most airlines do not permit carrying alcohol in hand baggage. However, if purchased after security screening or from the airport’s security hold area, up to 5 litres in retail packaging is allowed.

Duty-Free Purchases: Alcohol bought from duty-free shops at the departing airport can be carried onboard. The packaging must remain sealed, and the bottles should be placed in hand baggage.

Consumption: It is strictly prohibited to consume alcohol from personal bottles onboard. Opening or serving alcohol on flights is also prohibited by DGCA regulations.

Restrictions: Alcohol bottles exceeding 70% alcohol content are not allowed on flights. Opened or partially used bottles cannot be carried.

Inebriated Passengers: Airlines reserve the right to deny boarding or confiscate alcohol from passengers who appear intoxicated.

Passengers should familiarize themselves with these guidelines to avoid fines, flight delays, or legal issues related to carrying alcohol on flights.
