duty free

Im looking at getting a flight back from uk to istanbul and then re checking in with different airline in istanbul. Im wondering, if I buy duty free alcohol in uk airport can I check in with it in istanbul? As they wont let you take liquids through or would it have to go in my case? Or can you get a sealed bag to show it came from the airport and hasnt been opened?

Thanks

Re: duty free

If you are in transit theres no problem but the duty frees in Istanbul airport are better than the UK

Re: duty free

most things are much more expensive at Istanbul, Im assuming you mean spirits, ie 2 litres for 18 at manchester, 1 litre for 12 to 14 euros at Istanbul, my bag was sealed at manchester, you still do immigration at istanbul, and re check in at domestic even flying with Turkish

Thanks, thats what I was hoping. So as long as I get a sealed bag in London airport and dont open it I should be ableto check back in in istanbul with the alcohol as my hand luggage with no problems.

Thankyou
