Turkish Air- flying with firearms

I am booked to fly on Turkish in December, my first time flying with them with a firearm. I called and they say said they have made a note in their system that I am flying with a firearm, and that nothing else is required from me. From experience on other airlines, this seems too easy to be true.

Any experience?

I flew them to and from Tajikistan in 2019. No problems at all.

I do not remember doing anything special.

I have only flown Turkish with a firearm domestically within Turkey. Absolutely no problem except for a small issue in Antalya where I was asked to take my bolt from a separate bag and put it into my rifle case...!! The reason I separated them was I was connecting to an Emirates flight in Istanbul and was following their guideline. Luckily at Emirates check in I was not asked to separate the bolt again.
If you are flying Turkish and your destination is Turkey I recommend you ask and allow your outfitter to escort you through firearms clearance on arrival. I've taken a rifle to Turkey only once and the permitting / clearance procedure is convoluted and time consuming. It all worked out but without local assistance would have been a nightmare.


Hunting.... it's not everything, it's the only thing.

September 2019 Dusseldorf / Istanbul / Bishkek and return. Easiest and no charge firearm handling ever! Bishkek we got charged but that was an airport rip off and not Turkish. Great airline and firearm easy!
