Archery Fees and Policies - Flying With Archery Equipment

Archery Equipment (bow and arrow) is usually accepted as checked luggage, without an additional charge. Most airlines expect your bow and arrows to be packed in rigid/hard shell containers specifically designed for archery equipment. Some airlines do not accept archery equipment as checked baggage, or charge an extra fee, so check the table below, and be sure to read the exact archery equipment policy for your airline.
