If you are flying to and from Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA), we have news for you!
As the festive season has officially kicked in with the arrival of Ganesha, it is a time to celebrate with your family and friends. But that also includes travel and long lines at the airport!
Both the airport and the travelers have important roles to play. To ensure a good and safe trip, the CSMIA, in a press release, has listed items that travellers are not allowed to carry this festive season.
The Mumbai airport understands that people have special attachments to religious items, especially during festivals. However, some of these items that seem harmless can actually be very dangerous and threaten safety and security.
These are the items that are very frequently found and are prohibited.
Dry coconut (copra)
Fireworks, flares, or party poppers
Ghee, pickles, or other oily food items
Other Prohibited Items
