Fee for Carriage of Guns

From 12 January 2018 a service fee of 20 TL will be applied for the carriage of a personal gun on our domestic flight services, providing that a copy of the necessary approval or permission is presented.
 
Those passengers who need to carry a gun on flights, should hand in their gun at the “Gun surrender point” at the entrance to the airport, before security control. They should then pay the required charge at the check-in desk and request the appropriate baggage label for the gun. The fee can be paid in cash or by credit card.  Guns which are carried for sporting purposes will be classified as ‘sporting equipment’ and a charge will be made accordingly.
