Darts in Hand Luggage


Are darts allowed in hand luggage?

The answer is quite clear: No. Darts are not allowed in hand luggage, neither in the EU nor in the USA. Neither conventional steel darts with a metal tip nor e-darts/soft darts with a plastic tip are allowed. Dart arrows are considered dangerous items (pointed objects) in hand luggage and therefore do not make it through the security check. If you want to bring darts, please do so in your checked baggage.


What about darts in hand luggage in the US?

In the USA, as well as in the EU and in Europe in general, darts are banned in hand luggage. As always, you will find the information about this at the American Transport Security Authority TSA: Darts in hand luggage in the US. There is no quantity restriction for darts in checked baggage.


But what about Softdarts?

Sorry, dear darts friends. Also E-Darts/Softdarts with plastic tip don’t usually work in hand luggage. Even these apparently less dangerous darts have to be carried in your checked baggage.


Keep practising, though
