Arms and Ammunition

Air Inuit passengers may transport firearms and ammunition, provided they observe important restrictions for obvious safety reasons.

Firearms and ammunitions are permitted ONLY in checked baggage and ONLY if they are:
  • Unloaded
  • Packed in a locked, opaque container or hard-sided container
  • Rendered inoperable by means of a secure locking mechanism
Ammunition must be:
  • Securely packaged separately from the firearm
  • Carried in sturdy baggage and weigh no more than 5 kg (11 lbs) per person
  • Packed in the manufacturer’s original container or equivalent
