Hi I'm flying from Stansted on Ryanair. I have bought some foldable treking poles that fit into my back pack will I have problems getting past security??
Ryanair's booking conditions state hiking poles must be in checked luggage as does UK Gov't website. As Ryanair staff don't normally know what is in luggage the problem arises at the security scanner. If leaving Santiago on Ryanair you must check your poles as hold luggage.
Hi jordean,Just flew with RyanAir in April to Porto and back from Frankfurt. Both my daughter and I had the Z-fold type poles in our carry-on bags. No questions asked. We had paid the premium boarding price though which meant we were guarenteed space for our back packs, plus a 2nd small carry on that fit under the seat.
Hi Scott Treker,Ok thanks for replies . Is it worth buying _adding 1xbag to my flight at£25 seems a waste adding 1xbag with 2 small foldable poles through
Then you will understand how much it riles us who don't live in a region under TSA jurisdiction and who don't fly from US airports to be castigated for supposedly "trying to flaunt our anecdotal success at avoiding security protocols". Please read the standard message on this topic that the forum moderators have posted numerous times. Thank you.Anecdotal reports of success at defeating the intended security rules sort of rile me. [...] Pretty please???
Hi Scott possible problem if you want to take them on board with you .But no problem as checked in. I have just been from New Zealand done my second Camino and no problem as checked in luggage. Good luck God bless.
Forgot to say I am sure I saw a grumpy pilgrim in Santiago airport with poles in their hands and muttering well they could have told me that to start with. And this may relate to your questionHi Scott possible problem if you want to take them on board with you .But no problem as checked in. I have just been from New Zealand done my second Camino and no problem as checked in luggage. Good luck God bless.
Yes, that is correct. Free on all airlines, all tickets, even the cheapest Ryanair ticket. People on the forum have confirmed it, based on their own experience, and we even got it in written form from Ryanair's ground handler in Santiago airport. Not available for flights to Santiago or at any other Spanish airport. Exclusively on flights departing from Santiago.I recently read in the forum that people leaving Santiago after their pilgrimage ....can put their walking poles into the hold of ANY airline for free.....a special offer for Santiago I believe.
