Firearms are not permitted on international flights to or from the U.S.
There is no additional charge or limit for checking shooting equipment. However, one piece of shooting equipment will count as one of your checked bags.
You must be 18 years of age to check a firearm.
Firearms, shooting equipment and related items will be accepted only as checked baggage subject to the following specific conditions:
All firearms must be unloaded and must be packed in either a lockable crush-proof container specifically designed for the firearm, or in a hard sided container with TSA approved locks or combination locks (where the customer checking the firearm retains the combination numbers). If the firearm case cannot be locked, JetBlue Airways will not accept the item. TSA recommends that you provide the key or combination to the security officer if he or she needs to open the container. You should remain present during screening to take the key back after the container is cleared. Once TSA confirms that all of the criteria is met, the firearm may be placed in your checked bag.
Ammunition for the firearm cannot be placed in the same container as the firearm, but may be in the same checked bag as long as everything is packaged properly. Ammunition must be housed in a separate container that is completely separate and distinct from the firearms locked box. The ammunition must be packaged in a fiber (such as cardboard), wood or metal box specifically designed for carrying small amounts of ammunition. Ammunition is limited to 10 pounds per customer. Ammunition will not be permitted in carry-on or checked baggage on international flights.
Pistol cases may be available for purchase by cash or credit card at any JetBlue ticket counter for a nonrefundable fee of $50. Quantities are limited.
One item of shooting equipment is considered:
One rifle case containing no more than two rifles with or without scopes, one shooting net, noise suppressors, and a small rifle tool set, or one shotgun case containing no more than two shotguns, or one pistol case containing no more than four pistols, or one bow and quiver of arrows and maintenance kit enclosed in a case or container of sufficient strength to protect the bow and quiver with arrows from accidental damage.
Please note: BB guns and air guns are also considered as shooting equipment and will be treated as such.
