According to the new legislation, only a few Saudi Arabian airlines will be able to transport ZamZam water from Jeddah, Riyadh, or Dammam airports after 2022.
Taking ZamZam water inside luggage
The General Authority of Civil Planes (GACA) recently issued a directive prohibiting all commercial airlines and private aviation from transporting any liquids, including ZamZam water, in checked bags. Saudi Aramco has announced new Petrol prices for May 2022 in the Kingdom.
GACA announced in its circular that all airlines departing from Saudi airports will not allow passengers to take liquids (ZamZam packages) within their checked bags, citing Article 23 of the Civil Aviation Law. You can, however, take it by following the steps outlined below.
