Planning & Booking
What are Dangerous Goods
Dangerous Goods are items that could jeopardise the safety of an aircraft, or the people on board that aircraft.
Dangerous Goods are also known as restricted articles, hazardous materials and dangerous cargo. Their carriage on Jetstar aircraft is primarily governed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority Regulations.
Jetstar and Qantas follow the same dangerous goods policy and Qantas provides operator approval of dangerous goods on Jetstar services. Please view the Qantas Dangerous Goods page for full details, including a Dangerous Goods guide and contact details
Dangerous Goods must not be carried in (or as) passenger or crew-checked baggage or carry-on baggage, except as indicated in the table below. Security type attaché cases incorporating Dangerous Goods, such as lithium batteries or pyrotechnic devices, are totally forbidden.
Disabling devices such as mace or pepper spray, which contain an irritant or incapacitating substance, are also totally forbidden.
Civil Aviation Safety Regulations forbid the carriage of most items of Dangerous Goods onto an aircraft.
Firearms and Ammunition
We may agree to carry firearms and ammunition as checked baggage. If we do these items must be packed in accordance with all applicable national and international laws and regulations.
Important note: Jetstar does not permit the carriage of Munitions of War (firearms and/or ammunition) into, out of or through Singapore.
Firearms and ammunition cannot be carried on Jetstar Japan (GK) flights.
