The advent of budget airlines, increase in charter flights and a general shrinking of the world have all combined to make what was once, only possible as a dream a reality for many sportsmen. Overseas sport is no longer the realm of a lucky few but can be enjoyed by all. Whether your passion lies with rod, rifle or rod or even a combination of all Outside days brings a selection for all.

Flying with firearms and fishing rods

We advise that all clients view the web site of the airline they are flying with, print out the guidelines  and take them with you. Very often the airline staff are not aware of their own regulations.

In general all checked firearms must be packed in a locked hard case, and be partially disassembled, with the key or combination to the case being kept by yourself.
If one of the screeners detects something suspicious or chooses to open the gun case, the airline’s representative will contact you to provide the key or combination.

Travel fishing rods have made life much easier for the jet-setting angler but if you need to use an additional rod case make sure it is of the non-crush variety. It’s upsetting to break a favourite rod when hooked into a fish of a lifetime but really upsetting to turn up at you arrival airport to find your broken rods appear on the carousel.

We advise where possible to actually accompany your guns and rods through the screening process, but do listen to announcements  in the terminal and at the gate to avoid unnecessary delays.

Most airlines travelling to or from the UK have a baggage allowance of 20kg to 23kg and some include the sporting equipment allowance within that however some do charge extra.

All airlines have a CAA-imposed 5kg limit for the transport of ammunition per passenger.
