The Saudi aviation authorities have banned carrying Aab-e-Zamzam in one’s checked-in luggage ahead of Zil Hajj, the holy month for the Islamic pilgrimage of Hajj.

Saudi General Aviation Authority has issued an official notification for the new guideline, restricting the pilgrims from carrying Zamzam — water from the well of Zamzam back to their countries.

All the airlines have been bound to ensure that none of the passengers traveling through Jeddah or any other airport in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have bottles filled with Aab-e-Zamzam.

Action will be taken against the airlines in case of violation of the new orders.
