Lufthansa Ban on Carrying Firearms and Shotguns

16/10/2018
It has been brought to our attention that Lufthansa is refusing to carry firearms and shotguns on flights into Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Heathrow airports, regardless of whether passengers hold the necessary visitor permits; this would appear to be a commercial decision for Lufthansa and does not result from Scottish Government or UK Government policy. BASC Scotland and SCSTG […]
