All axe type implements are restricted from carry-on luggage, but they can go in your checked-in luggage. Axe type implements include a xes, hatchets, tomahawks, battle axes, ice axes and picks.
Items must be in checked-in luggage only.
These items can be used as weapons and cause harm to the crew and passengers.
You will be asked to relinquish all dangerous or prohibited items found in your carry-on luggage. If you refuse:
AvSec x-ray bags going onto aircraft to ensure there is nothing dangerous in them. If something comes up on the x-ray that needs checking, the bag will be opened, searched and any dangerous good or prohibited item will be removed, with a bag search notification form left within the bag.
If you want to retrieve an item that has been removed, please contact your airline as soon as possible. The airline will dispose of items within three to seven days, so the sooner you make contact, the better your chance of having the items returned to you. For more information, see:
