Congratulations to Luke Stimson are in order. Luke is refitting a boat in Japan with a view to sailing it to UK. Home for Christmas, he purchased 8 Commodore auto harness lifejackets from us along with some other bits and pieces and took them to Manchester Airport to board his flight back to Japan. Armed with our Lifejacket Information for Air Travel guide he was able after firm persuasion and a bit of education for the airport security staff to get them to accept his luggage including the lifejackets. Yes, you can take your lifejacket on an aircraft! If you need to fly with lifejackets containing CO2 bottles, call us for a copy of our Air Travel guide.
