How to Fly Firearms to Hawaii


If you are moving to Hawaii or are going on an excursion in Hawaii that requires use of a firearm, you will need to bring your gun with you on your journey. Passengers on a flight to Hawaii can check firearms as baggage during the check-in process, but passengers checking a firearm must be fully aware of all restrictions and rules applied to checking a firearm before arriving at the airport.

Things You'll Need

  • Gun case
  • Ticket to Hawaii
  • Put your firearm in the manufacturer's case that came with the gun or purchase a hard sided case that will fit your gun. The firearm must be unloaded before being put in its case to be checked.

  • Decide whether to put your gun in its case inside your suitcase or checked it in on its own. If you put the case inside a suitcase, the suitcase must be closed with a TSA approved lock before it can be checked, and it must be a hard-sided suitcase.

  • Put all ammunition into one bag. The ammunition and gun accessories, such as noise suppressors, cannot exceed 11 pounds. The ammunition must be in its original packaging; there can be no loose ammunition.

  • Declare to the representative at the check-in counter that you have a firearm that you want to check as baggage or that's enclosed inside your suitcase.

Tips & Warnings

  • You must be 18 years of age or older to check a firearm. A firearm being checked as a piece of luggage is applied to the free baggage allowance.
