Air Botswana & the transportation of firearms
The following information was forwarded by Debbie Peake as received from Action Kombani, Acting Customer & Ground Services Manager, Air Botswana. Please advise clients of the new protocol.
Civil Aviation Authority of SA (SACAA) has agreed that Air Botswana can carry rifles on the condition that the Airline will put additional padlocks on the gun cases which will be unlocked at the Air Botswana destinations i.e. Johannesburg, Maun, Kasane, Francistown and Gaberone.
Air Botswana apologizes for the inconvenience caused to yourselves and your valued customers.
In transit passenger at ORT:
All rifles are handled by G4S, a security company, including transit rifles which mean that the Air Botswana staff will go to the G4S transit office to put on the padlock.
