Liquor is one commodity about whose carriage in flight, the passengers are not sure. They ask many questions? Whether it will be allowed or not? Will it be allowed in cabin luggage or in check-in baggage? Will i be able to carry it if I am doing Indigo web check in ? How much quantity can i take along with me in domestic or international flights of Indigo? How shall i pack it so that there is no issue in the flight?
We will provide answers to all these questions here. And, if you have any queries, you can surely ask us here on this platform. Let us first be clear that each adult passenger is allowed to carry up to 5 liters of liquor (be in wine, beer, whisky or other) in the check in baggage. Airline will not charge you any extra sum for its carriage if it is within the permitted check in baggage allowance by weight. Thus, domestic flights are allowed 15 kg free check in allowance per person and it can be carried in the flight.
Liquor can not be carried in the cabin baggage. This is strictly prohibited. Even if you have bought it from the duty-free shop at the airport, you would not be allowed to carry it inside the cabin. Thus, international travelers are advised not to carry it in cabin luggage.
Another important point to note is that this shall be carried in sealed condition in check-in baggage. If the bottle is open, then it will not be allowed to be carried.
People who do Indigo web check in shall first check whether they will be allowed to carry their check-in bags. In other words, they shall first check whether the departure airport has the facility of drop-off counters at the airport for check in baggage or not. If there is no such facility, then web check in is of no meaning. Therefore, customers with liquor in check in baggage shall first ensure that there is a luggage drop-off counter at the airport.
