European Union Commission Restricts Carriage Of Ammunition

The European Union Commission recently released a new air-travel security regulation which, in part, prohibits the carriage of ammunition in checked baggage.  This new regulation could make it very difficult for hunters to leave Europe with ammunition and might even cause problems for travelers transiting through Europe with ammunition, on their way to non-European destinations.  Individual EU countries have the ability to opt out of the regulation, and SCI is working to encourage as many countries as possible to do so in their national air safety rules.   SCI is also working to clarify whether the regulation will affect hunters who must fly through Europe, such as those who simply change planes in a European airport.  Keep watching for further developments on this issue, including details on any country that confirms that it plans to exempt itself from this regulation.  This regulation goes into effect on April 29, so anyone travelling with ammunition through Europe after that date needs to contact the airline to make sure that there will not be any issues.  The full regulation can be accessed from: http://bit.ly/ajdSlf.
