Firearms for sports or hunting may only be carried in checked baggage, and only with specific permission from the airline. If you are planning on traveling with a firearm, you must inform us when you make your flight reservation.
- A firearm case is considered one piece of baggage.
- The fee for a firearm case depends on the baggage allowance of your ticket as well as how much other baggage you’re taking with you. If your ticket bears the code “1 PC”, you can take one firearm case or one other piece of baggage free of charge. If you wish to travel with both, you will need to pay for one piece of baggage according to our excess-baggage price list.
- If you’re travelling on a Finnair scheduled flight, you can pay excess-baggage fees on our website via the My booking link.
- If you’re travelling on a Finnair leisure flight (AY1000 series), you can pay excess-baggage fees on our website via the Leisure flight supplementary services link.
- There is an additional mandatory handling fee of €25 per passenger. You can pay the fee beforehand with a Finnair Plus voucher or by contacting our customer service by telephone.
- The firearm must be unloaded and packed in a sturdy package.
- Securely boxed cartridges may be carried in checked baggage only in quantities not exceeding 5 kg (including the package) per passenger. The ammunition may not include explosive bullets or incendiary bullets, and their classification must be 1.4S and their UN number either UN 0012 or UN0014. The firearm and ammunition may not be carried in the same container.
