Well the obvious answer is talk to KLM, but in these days I`m sure they won`t allow anything like that. More to the point, why would he take it with him if he can`t open it? This doesn't make sense. And on arrival , what does he tell Customs? "Don't worry, you don't need to look in there?" Good luck!

If he cannot open it,then they are not going to let him through...you just about have to open your laptops,turn them on,and play a game of checkers just to get it through....plus they could not detect what could be in the envelops, could be a powder of some type,and they might not believe him carring a safe without a combination
