Haj pilgrims can carry Zamzam water within permissible baggage allowance: Air India

NSD Logo
Air India has said that pilgrims returning from Saudi Arabia after Haj will be allowed to carry holy water from the Zamzam within permissible baggage allowance.

The well of Zamzam is located in Mecca in Saudi Arabia and many Haj pilgrims bring the holy water from the well for family and friends.


On July 4, the sales team of Air India's Jeddah office reportedly wrote to all travel agents stating that till September 15, due to change of aircraft and limitation of seats, Zamzam cans will not be allowed on some flights.


Air India clarified in a tweet today that passengers are allowed to carry Zamzam cans within their permissible baggage allowance. The airline further apologised for the inconvenience.
