firearms and toy guns


Whether for sporting, professional, recreational, military, hunting or any other purpose, all firearms, parts thereof and ammunition can no longer be transported on board or British Airways (operated by Comair) flights. The reason for this new rule is that the cost of handling has become excessive. This cost is passed on to our customers and in most cases can exceed the cost of the ticket.

Absolutely no firearms will be allowed onboard, whether on your person, in checked or hand luggage, or anywhere on our flights. This rule is effective from 1st March 2013. If you have already booked your tickets for travel after 31 March 2013 and you intended to travel with a weapon, please call our Contact Centre to find out what your options are.

toy guns

We’re sorry but this rule will affect our younger travellers too. With today’s technology guns can be made from plastic and even appear to be a toy. To ensure your safety, from the 1st of July all toy guns will be prohibited from all kulula and British Airways (operated by Comair) flights as checked in or hand luggage.
