All blasting / detonator caps or fuses are strictly forbidden from carriage on an aircraft.

Why is this item restricted?

Blasting caps and detonators are a risk to people and aircraft.

If you are found in possession of these items at an airport [including if you are licenced] it is highly likely that:

  • you will miss your flight
  • you will be trespassed from the airport
  • the NZ Police will be alerted
  • you will be arrested.

What happens if I have a restricted item in my carry-on bag?

You will be asked to relinquish all dangerous or prohibited items found in your carry-on luggage. If you refuse:

  • you will not be permitted to move through the screening point, and
  • your airline will be advised of your refusal.

How does Aviation Security screen for restricted items?

We x-ray bags going on planes to make sure there is nothing dangerous in them. If something comes up on the x-ray that needs checking, the bag will be opened, searched and any dangerous or prohibited item will be removed.
