We recently heard from subscriber Scott Swasey, who was told by operator Safaris Chelet (www.cheletsafaris.com
) that he should check his ammo in a separate container (with a total weight less than five kilograms) independent of his luggage on his way to Douala through Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) in Paris on Air France. Swasey emailed us to ask about the regulation so that we could notify other subscribers.
Unfortunately, Air France has released contradictory information about the handling of ammunition on its flights. The airline's website states
, "Cartridges and ammunition are permitted in your checked baggage as long as you let us know you are bringing these items when booking your ticket and store them in a hard case...."
