United Airlines recently made a temporary change to their policy regarding the acceptance of firearms for interline transfer to other carriers.   With the peak hunt season now upon us, South African Airways realizes the importance of making this process seamless. South African Airways has worked with United Airlines to resolve this matter and we would like to advise you that UA is now accepting firearms and ammunition for interline transfer to SAA.

To facilitate the transfer of the weapons, it is important that you advise your clients that they should mention to the SAA check-in agent at our gateways that they have firearms and ammunitions as part of their through checked luggage.   This will enable SAA to double check that the firearms and ammunition have been received from the delivering carrier and are loaded onto the transatlantic flight.   This additional check will assist in the successful transfer of these valuable goods.

Thank you for your continued support of South African Airways and we look forward to further developing our business to achieve mutual success for our companies.  If you have any questions, please contact your SAA Director, Sales Development or Inside Sales Representative.
