Ammunition Requirements on SA Airlines
I just read Jerome P's post (Latest Hunting News) about SAA's (possibly new) requirements for transporting ammunition in checked baggage.
SAA's website: currently says: "We strongly recommend that ammunition be packed in lockable cases, which can be handed in as loose items at the firearm counters to avoid possible delays during checked baggage screening."
It also says (regarding flights originating outside of SA): "Ammunition may be carried within checked luggage, provided that it is securely packed in a lockable or secure container, and that the total weight does not exceed 5kg痴 of ammunition per passenger carrying a firearm. (In general, most airlines allow the carriage of ammunition in terms of the dictums of ICAO Dangerous Goods Standards and associated airline processes followed in terms of IATA requirements/guidance)."
I have a flight on SAA to Johannesburg in two weeks. Am I still OK with ammunition in ammo boxes, padded in foam, locked in a steel cash box?
I had to do this to satisfy United Airlines requirements anyway...
