Firearms and ammunition
Weapons and ammunition for sporting and hunting purposes are carried as checked baggage with a specific permission from the airline.
- A firearm case may contain maximum 2 rifles or shotguns (long arm) or 5 guns (short arm).
- A firearm case is always considered one piece of baggage, and extra bag charge applies if the allowance is exceeded.
- There is also an additional mandatory handling fee of €25 (or equivalent in local currency) per firearm case. The fee is for flights in one direction. The fee can be collected beforehand with an EMD-A.
- The firearm must be unloaded and packed in a sturdy package.
- Securely boxed cartridges may be carried as 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.
- These conditions also apply to the carriage of replicas, decommissioned guns and guns for game purposes, e.g. airsoft and paintball guns.
- WEAP fee is refundable. If e-ticket is reissued to another route after EMD-A has been issued, refund Weapon handling fee EMD and issue a new one for the new routing.
- Please note that it is not possible to travel with weapon to/via London Heathrow.
- As of 7.2.2020 Finnair does not accept any future bookings of firearms (SSR WEAP) to or from Milan Malpensa (MXP) due to changes in the required handling process. This is a temporary change for now, and we will inform you if the embargo will continue permanently. Currently there is no change for already confirmed bookings but if this changes, we will inform you.
