The Commission may also authorize air carriers to store, at facilities approved by the Commission, alcoholic beverages to be sold or served pursuant to subsection (b).

(b)        Sale. - Air carriers may sell and serve alcoholic beverages anywhere in this State to passengers while in transit aboard any aircraft.
