Airport staff left baffled after bloke checks in a can of BEER for his flight across Australia

THIS bloke took the idea of travelling light to the next level when he checked in nothing but a BEER CAN for his flight.

The thirsty passenger, who wishes to remain anonymous, left Melbourne airport staff baffled when he arrived for his Qantas Airways trip to Perth, Australia, on Saturday.

The beer-loving traveller arrived with nothing but a solitary can of Emu Export lager, which was snapped by ground staff as it travelled along the conveyor belt with its luggage label.

Incredibly, the lone tinny made it to its destination, spotted by its stunned owner at the baggage reclaim area.

The passenger admitted he was dubious whether the beer can would make it, after he and a buddy came up with the idea.

He told Daily Mail Australia: "My mate works at the airport and we hatched the plan as a laugh – I half didn't expect it to come out the other end.

"But when it did it was sent out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it."

According to Peter Ellis, of travel site FlightMood, this isn't the first time that the Aussie tipple has been checked in as baggage.

He explained: "Export being checked in as baggage is not an uncommon sight so I wasn't even surprised.
