Alcohol lovers flying to and from Pune, rejoice! Pune’s airport will soon serve liquor to all the domestic passengers.

"The outlet will be on the ground floor of the terminal building, at the arrival area. Spread across an area of 27.77 sq mt, it will be a duty paid shop for domestic passengers at the Pune airport. The tender for the same has been floated," confirmed an airport official.

Not just liquor, the airport is also planning to roll out a few food outlets. Talking in detail about this, another official said,

We have started many new facilities at the airport. Several new food outlets have come up on the airport premises and recently, we even started an outlet selling South Indian food at affordable prices. Some other projects will also be completed this year. Once the new liquor shop opens, hopefully within a month or so, the passengers will have many options. Moreover, it will also generate revenue for the Airport Authority of India (AAI).

Discussing the legal aspect and the price of alcohol, Ajay Kumar, director of Pune airport said,

Liquor pricing is an issue governed by the seller. However, the shop will have to follow the state's excise rules.

Anticipating the occurrence of worst circumstances, the official said,

Having an outlet selling liquor does not mean drunken behaviour will be tolerated in the terminal building or on the airport premises. Passengers should understand that such behaviour will have serious consequences.

Making the norms even more strict, a penalty of Rs 5,000 will be charged on those who will be found in an intoxicated condition inside the airport.
