Jet Airways - liquids restrictions for domestic flights?

Hi -

I will be at some domestic flights next month (Jet Airways, India).

What are the current restrictions w.r.t. liquids/gels/cremes for Indian domestic flights?

I did find infos in this forum that are a couple of months old, and that state: same restrictions as currently applied with the EU.

Still valid?

Thanks and regards,
uisge

Hi uisge,

There usually is a restriction in place, but I frequently have a bottle (1 liter) of water in my bags, which they usually spot, and if sealed, let me through with it.

This is ex-BOM, and also sometimes ex-MAA, although MAA security is more strict.

It really varies at different airports, so very "hit and miss", actually!

The airport security is run by the CISF (Central Industrial Security Force), who is now present in most airports, else the local police are there instead (and usually more strict!), like in places as:

AMD
IXM

etc...

Usual EU rules apply .. small bottles in ziploc bags. You get served water quite frequently on board the plane anyway so that's not an issue.

I flew Sahara (then slowly becoming Jetlite) in July out of DEL, and they assured me that bottled water was not a problem. Indeed there was no problem. Why Jet is different I have no idea.

All security procedures should be uniform, but they vary in implementation, but this is per airport only, and not by airline, unless Jet re-initiates their own secondary security screening, which *may* require to have a passenger's liquids be explained...

Thank for the answers. Thus, I'll get a zippo bag prepared for securities.

This is an old thread. But the question is exactly what I have.

Do the restrictions that apply to carry on liquids, similar to what the TSA enforces in the US i.e. small containers that fit into a quart sized zip loc?

Can I carry on an empty water bottle?

This is for travel within India primarily on Jet (9W).

Yeah, that's the official policy, but with indian security, YMMV cannot be stressed enough. I've brought multiple water bottles before, and I've been stopped with a mango juice that was barely over the maximum allowed.

9W has no control over security, it is done by the Airport I believe.

I like to carry a few of the 50ml bottles of some scotch in my carryon. As long as they are within the limits, is booze treated any differently than other liquids for domestic flights. Airports will be BLR, COK and MAA. 9w from blr to MAA to COK and AI to del from COK.

i don't know how many do you mean by a few. I recently saw airport security at BOM insisting on someone checking these in or throwing them away in Domestic segments.

But Those must have been duty free 1 litre bottles?
