Although we allow handguns to be carried on all fastjet flights, to ensure the safety of our Customers we have put in place important rules and regulations. This is what you need to know.

Can I carry a handgun?

We do allow the carriage of handguns and ammunition, provided it is for personal protection. Please note that this is at the sole and absolute discretion of fastjet. You may carry a maximum of 5 kg of ammunition, provided it's packed separately in your checked baggage. No loose ammunition may be placed in your checked baggage.

Only Customers 18 years and older may check-in a handgun.


At the airport

  • Handguns must be declared at check-in.

  • Your handgun must be placed in a pouch, be unloaded and have the safety catch on.

  • You will also need to produce valid documentation proving ownership and legal authority for the possession of the firearm(s). Without this documentation, a firearm WILL NOT be carried.

  • They must then be taken to security, where they will be given a safety examination before being loaded into the gun box in the hold of the aircraft.

  • A form will then be given to you to complete. You can download the form here.

  • The firearm may be collected from the firearms office after arrival at your destination.


Please note that if you are found to have placed a gun in your checked baggage, the weapon will be confiscated.


Can I carry my sporting rifle?

Fastjet permits the carriage of rifles used for sporting purposes on all flights operated by Fastjet Zimbabwe. This is subject to certain conditions which you must adhere to, to ensure that we can transport your rifle securely and in accordance with all the requirements. Please refer to our Sporting Rifles page for more details.
