Thread: Travel with firearms

    Travel with firearms

    I am about to travel to New Zealand for a three week trip. The main focus being Sika on the North Island and Thar on the South.

    This is my first time flying with firearms and I was wondering if some of you could offer some advise. I have my permit for NZ and have told Qantas but they haven't given me any instructions other than I do not need to have approval to care firearms in a Qantas flight to NZ.

    Thanks in advance

    I take it you haven't searched then?
    Quantas sound like a good airline, no extra fee for rifle bag.
    My advice.... get there really early and print off the info on the airlines website/emails etc
    Cheers and good luck with the hunt

    Yes I have this PDF.

    The focus of my query was more on making everything run smoothly based on peoples passed experience?

    Tell them in advance, print ANY communication, and get there early, if things go pear shaped then at least you have time to sort it out.

    When checking in, the first thing to say is "I am traveling with sporting firearms". Don't ever say guns!
