A quick question about carry on of duty free liquids and connecting flights that I can't seem to find an answer to.

 

If I am travelling back from overseas through Auckland, and then have another flight to Wellington that is not part of the same booking, am I able to take duty free spirits purchases on the second flight? Do the duty free purchases get put into a tamper resistant bag that is ok to carry on a domestic flight, or, am I out of luck?

You won't have a problem taking them as carry on domestically. I don't know the rules but maybe it's officially allowed as they are unopened? Not that they even bother to check them...

Domestically there are no reasonalble restictions on liquids, - turning up in your flip flops with an open tinny on the other hand :)

 

 

 

The quantity of powders, liquids, aerosols and gels passengers can carry on board international flights are restricted. The restrictions:

 

  • apply only to carry-on luggage for international flights
  • do not apply to domestic flights
  • do not apply to checked luggage for international flights.

The open tinny will be removed from your person...

Drinking your own alcohol is not permitted. Feel free to bring unopened duty free on a domestic flight.

You will run into trouble transiting to another international flight without clearing customs as transit is subject to LAGS restrictions.

Cheers.

Yes.. don't do this on an international transit.. I lost a bottle of Gin transiting through Hong Kong to China.. Purchased in Auckland.

 

I was given a receipt for it in Hong Kong.. A piece of paper swapped for my Gin sounded like a fair deal.

 

Not.
