5: We called Air Canada, we were told ONLY adult is allowed to take alcoholic liquids, minor age children are NOT allowed to take. (we called them is because we did not find out related information from Air Canada official website. To confirm this information, we strongly recommend you contact Air Canada yourself);

Is there any limits if I take Canada Ice Wine?

Canada Ice Wine is famous in the world. Travellers like to buy ice wines and take to different countries.

How many bottles of Ice Wine you can take if you select airplane?

First let us share an information which is from Canadian Government website: You can carry up to a maximum of 5 L of alcoholic beverages containing between 24 and 70 percent alcohol by volume in retail packaging by air. There are no restrictions on alcoholic beverages containing 24 percent alcohol or less.

Normally the Canadian Ice Wine contains  around 10% alcohol, so Ice Wine looks like is allowed to take without restrictions by Canadian government. But please be aware of this policy is mostly for entering to Canada. 

But how about Air Canada for the ice wine policy ?

We can not find clear information from Air Canada about Ice Wine, so we called Air Canada, we were told there is no limits if Canadian Ice Wine with around 10% alcohol content. (However, we still strongly recommend you contact Air Canada by yourself to get correct travel with ice wine information, maybe Air Canada changed policy when you are start new travel)

Also Please Check Custom Policy of Target Country

After you get clear information from Air Canada, please do NOT forget to check the target country’s custom related policy about alcoholic beverages. Because we have seen from above Air Canada limits total liquids capacity up to 2L, but Canada government allows up to 5L totally. Obviously a Airplane company makes different policy with a country’s government includes their custom in country borders.

To get correct information how many Alcoholic items exactly you can take, you should at least check two places: one is Air Canada (or Any airplane company you selected), another one is the custom of your target country.
