Q. Can I take needles on board?

If you are taking needles for medical purposes, for example if you are insulin dependent, this is fine and we can provide a medical sharps box upon request.

Please call our Customer Contact Centre (please visit our website for contact details) or speak to your local travel agent to request a sharps box which will be placed in your cabin.

If you are taking knitting or sewing needles, these should be stored in your main luggage and not in your hand luggage.
