Dangerous Goods Regulation

Guidance for Dangerous Goods Carriage on Board

 

The list of prohibited items is not exhaustive and can be extended at any time. For certain flights, additional regulations may apply. Below guidance is based on the current edition of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Technical Instruction for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air and current Edition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR).

Batteries

The transport of lithium batteries which have been classed as defective or damaged or recalled by the manufacturer for safety reasons and have the potential to cause a hazardous generation of heat, fire or a short circuit is forbidden.

E-cigarettes

Including e-cigars, e-pipes, other personal vaporizers, containing batteries must be individually protected to prevent accidental activation

Checked baggage: no

Carry-on baggage: yes
Carrier’s approval required: no

 

Portable electronic devices (PED) containing lithium metal or lithium-ion cells or batteries

Including medical devices such as portable oxygen concentrators (POC) and consumer electronics such as cameras, mobile phones, laptops, and tablets, when carried by passengers or crew for personal use (see 2.3.5.9). For lithium metal batteries the lithium metal content must not exceed 2 g and for lithium-ion batteries, the Watt-hour rating must not exceed 100 Wh. Devices in checked baggage must be completely switched off and must be protected from damage. Each person is limited to a maximum of 15 PED. Baggage equipped with a lithium battery, other than lithium button cells, the battery must be removable. If offered as checked baggage the battery must be removed and carried in the cabin. *The operator may approve the carriage of more than 15 PED.

Checked baggage: yes

Carry-on baggage: yes
Carrier’s approval required: no

Portable electronic devices containing non-spillable batteries

Batteries must meet A67 and must be 12 V or less and 100 Wh or less. A maximum of 2 spare batteries may be carried (see 2.3.5.13 for details).

Checked baggage: yes

Carry-on baggage: yes
Carrier’s approval required: no

 

 

Lithium battery-powered electronic devices

Lithium-ion batteries for portable (including medical) electronic devices, a Wh rating exceeding 100 Wh but not exceeding 160 Wh. For portable medical electronic devices only, lithium metal batteries with a lithium metal content exceeding 2 g but not exceeding 8 g. Devices in checked baggage must be completely switched off and must be protected from damage.

Checked baggage: yes

Carry-on baggage: yes
Carrier’s approval required: yes

 

Lithium batteries, spare/loose

With a Watt-hour rating exceeding 100 Wh but not exceeding 160 Wh for consumer electronic devices and PMED or with a lithium metal content exceeding 2 g but not exceeding 8 g for PMED only. Maximum of two spare batteries in carry-on baggage only. These batteries must be individually protected to prevent short circuits

Checked baggage: no
Carry-on baggage: yes
Carrier’s approval required: yes

Wheelchairs/Mobility aids          

Checked baggage: yes
Carry-on baggage: no
Carrier’s approval required: yes       

Mobility aids with removed batteries

Where a battery-powered wheelchair or mobility aid is loaded with the batteries removed, it

may then be carried as checked baggage without restriction (it must still be secured against

movement and protected from damage by the movement of baggage, mail or other cargo).

 

Mobility aids, wheelchair batteries

Batteries must be identified as spillable, non-spillable or lithium-ion so the ground staff can establish proper dangerous goods handling. Dry cell and gel cell batteries are considered non-spillable and fewer handling requirements are necessary. It is helpful if you have this information ready and available for our employees. Battery packs showing cracks and/or damage will not be accepted for transportation.

 

Spillable battery

Wet cell batteries are considered spillable and special preparation must be made before being transported by air. The battery will be accepted for transportation providing the following items are met:

  • The battery has no obvious defects upon visual inspection, which includes removal of the battery where necessary
  • The battery is disconnected and terminals are insulated to prevent short circuits
  • The wheelchair or mobility aid can be loaded, stowed, secured and unloaded in an upright position
  • If the battery is removed, it must be carried in strong, rigid battery box approved by MYWAY Airlines under the following condition:

The battery must be protected against short circuits, secured upright in the packaging and be packaged with enough compatible absorbent material to completely absorb liquid contents in the event of rupture of the battery.

 

 Non-spillable battery:

Dry cell and gel cell batteries are considered non-spillable and fewer requirements are necessary for their air transportation. If your wheelchair or mobility aid is powered by a non-spillable battery and can be stowed upright in the cargo bin of the aircraft, the battery should not need to be removed providing the following:

  • There must be at least one effective means designed into the wheelchair or mobility aid in order to prevent accidental activation or possible short-circuiting
  • If no effective way of preventing accidental activation of the device can be determined, then the battery cables will be removed and the battery terminals will be insulated to prevent short circuits
  • The battery must be securely attached to the wheelchair or mobility aid and fully enclosed in a rigid housing that is properly marked

 

Lithium-ion battery:

Lithium-ion batteries are classified independently of other battery types. Lithium batteries may overheat and ignite in certain conditions and, once ignited, may be difficult to extinguish. Lithium batteries are considered a hazardous material for which the following restrictions apply:

  • There must be at least one effective means designed into the wheelchair or mobility aid in order to prevent accidental activation or possible short-circuiting
  • If you have a collapsible mobility device, the battery must be removed and must not exceed 300-watt hours.
  • If you have a non-collapsible device, it is allowed for one large lithium-ion battery to be transported installed in the device and up to two spare batteries to be transported in carry-on baggage. There is no watt hour limit for the battery installed in the device. If you have one spare battery, it must not exceed 300-watt hours. If you have two spare batteries, they must not exceed 160-watt hours each.

The watt-hour rating is a measure by which lithium-ion batteries are regulated. If you are unsure of the watt-hour rating of your lithium-ion battery, contact the manufacturer of your device.

Spare batteries must be effectively protected against short-circuiting by:

  • Packing each battery or each battery-powered device, in fully enclosed inner packaging made of non-conductive material (such as a plastic bag)
  • Separating or packing batteries in a manner to prevent contact with other batteries, devices or conductive materials (e.g., metal) in the packaging
  • Ensuring that exposed terminals or connectors are protected with non-conductive caps, non-conductive tape or by other appropriate means
  • Lithium metal batteries (non-rechargeable) with more than two grams of lithium content are forbidden on commercial passenger aircraft.
