Topic - Warning No Climbing Gear in hand luggage on French flights!

chris smith - on 17 Oct 2013
Hi all
Just a warning Me and my friends were all recently stopped at the airport scanners and told it was illegal to bring any climbing equipment on the plane in Hand luggage. We were flying back from Nice airport last week. We were lucky in that we could go back and had to check one bag in with all of our climbing stuff into the main hold, this should have cost 30euro but easyjet let us off with this.
However not so lucky was a guy catching a flight to Berlin who isn't have time to check his luggage and lost 12 quick draws. This is the first time this has happened to me and it certainly wasn't a problem travelling out of the UK. Only on the return flight.
Just a heads up incase your heading out.
