Firearms, ammunition and firearm parts may only be transported in checked baggage and in the correct container or case. Firearms, ammunition and firearm parts are prohibited from carry-on baggage.
Royal Air Charters will only allow transportation of sporting guns and handguns in a special hard-case carrier. This container will be carried in the hold or a secure area out of reach of passengers during the flight.
The following is a summary of key regulatory requirements pertaining to the transport of sporting firearms, handguns, firearm parts or ammunition in checked baggage:
