Ammunition can only be carried on the aircraft as checked baggage and should be duly labelled and identified with the carrier's knowledge, packed in boxes of wood, metal or pressboard to protect it from excessive movement. Weapons and ammunition may not be placed in the same package. Cold steel weapons and sharp objects should be suitably packed.

Checking-in: Different regulations apply to checking in weapons at different airports. You should check with us and the airport before you travel what documentation will be required.
