Can you take duty free alcohol back to Australia from Indonesia when traveling on Jetstar?

first_imgFor a long time Jetstar was the only airline flying between Indonesia and Australia that would not allow passsnegers to carry duty free alcohol with them on the flight. To the joy of many travelers Jetstar have recently changed this policy joining the other carriers in allowing alcohol to be purchased and carried on board.Jetstar claims the reason for the restriction for so many years was “When you purchase liquids over 100ml they can’t be taken through the security check point as they will be confiscated as per the liquid and gel restrictions enforced for flights into and out of Australia.”  Jetstar stated “we don’t allow any liquids or gels that haven’t been screened onto the cabin, so we don’t allow duty-free alcohol on board. Other airlines may offer a service where they deliver your purchases to the boarding gate, therefore bypassing all screening.”Thankfully Jetstar too now offer this delivery service meaning you can purchase your duty free alcohol and collect it at your boarding gate before boarding the aircraft.last_img
