Thumbs up Easyjet response to issues raised by passengers with air rifles

Easyjet response to issues raised by passengers with air rifles

I'm pleased to say this seems to have a positive resolution. Thanks to all the help and guidance of the BASC, and the AMTA, the EFTA has been able to get this statement from Easyjet.

Unfortunately easyJet's carriage of firearms policy was applied incorrectly on this occasion and so we would like to apologise to the passengers affected.

We do not ask for the production of a licence, we simply ask for the owners to be able to prove legal ownership. We are aware that air rifles do not require owners to hold a licence but will now relook at the wording of our policy to ensure this is clearer and this error does not occur again.

We do ask for passengers to notify us in advance of travel which did not happen on this occasion and this is always preferable as any issues can be discussed before the flight.
The EFTA has asked for more clarification on what constitutes "proof of ownership", to which we have been told we should have a reply within a week.
