For liability purposes, JetBlue will not permit antlers or horns on any JetBlue flights.

Individual bats are not recommended and not permitted in carry-on baggage.

Firearms/Archery/Shooting Equipment and Ammunition

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.
