Pilots Giles recommends exemption in breath analyzer test
Earlier, the pilot group of Air India has requested the civil aviation regulator DGCA to give exemption in compulsory alcohol test before and after the flight due to fear of Coronavirus. A letter written by the Indian Pilots Guild (IPG) to Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Chief Arun Kumar said that the virus is ‘very dangerous’ for the crew of airlines who are involved in international flights. Because of this, there is a ‘greater risk’ of infection of the crew sitting in the cockpit.

Drinking is prohibited from 12 hours before flight.
Aircraft rules prohibit crew members from consuming alcohol for up to 12 hours before a flight. According to the rules, the entire crew of the flight is allowed to board the Breath Analyzer (BA) before boarding a flight. It is mandatory to give a test. If this is not possible, then this process is done after the flight’s landing.
