Sports Equipment - Scuba Diving

Items of scuba diving equipment will be accepted as checked baggage subject to the charges specified below.

The regulator valve must be completely disconnected from the cylinder and the cylinder no longer sealed (i.e. the cylinder has an open end) as the cylinder must have an opening to allow for a visual inspection inside.  If the cylinder is sealed (i.e. the regulator valve is still attached), the cylinder is prohibited and not permitted, regardless of the reading on the pressure gauge indicator. HA Agents will visibly ensure that the cylinder is completely empty and that there are no prohibited items inside.

Note: Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) is not to be confused with Emergency Escape Breathing Devices (EEBD) also referred to as Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). Due to TSA requirements HA will allow depleted EEBD or SCBA to be transported only as part of passenger's normal carry-on baggage allowance and not as checked baggage.

For the purpose of this provision one item of scuba diving equipment is defined as:

  • One scuba tank (tank must be empty)
  • One scuba regulator
  • One tank harness
  • One tank pressure gauge
  • One mask
  • Two fins
  • One snorkel
  • One knife
  • One spear gun
  • One safety vest
