3 years in prison and CHF 20,000 fine if caught bringing a gun on a plane

3 years in prison and CHF 20,000 fine if caught bringing a gun on a plane

Anyone attempting to bring a gun or other dangerous object onto a plane could risk up to three years in prison and a CHF20,000 fine.

The measure is part of a recommendation by the Swiss cabinet for a revision of the federal aviation law, which would tighten security restrictions and protocols at the nation's airports.

Currently anyone attempting to bring a gun onto a plane cabin may be arrested but not punished if the weapon is legal and they have a permit to carry it.

The draft law is now being considered by the Swiss parliament.
