Flight Resumption: No stamping of boarding pass; carry 350 ml hand sanitiser

Preparing for flight resumption in the next few days, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has allowed flyers to carry up to 350 ml of hand sanitisers on flights.

Note: Generally, not more than 100 ml of liquid is allowed in the hand baggage of an air traveller. But now all passengers are being advised to use hand sanitiser frequently amid the spread of COVID-19 infection

Also, CISF personnel would not be stamping any passenger’s boarding pass during the pre-embarkation security check (PESC) at airports.


More than 13 CISF personnel, who were posted at airports in cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad, have tested positive for coronavirus till date.

Every airport operator will have to ensure that there are enough CCTV cameras at an appropriate height in the PESC area for recording the identity of a passenger and his/her boarding pass.
