Due to the potential safety hazard that lithium batteries pose when transported in an aircraft's cargo hold, special precautions apply if you are travelling with a ‘smart bag’ that has built-in charging, location tracking or other battery-powered technology. Please note the following instructions:
- You may bring your 'smart bag' onto the plane with you, provided it meets carry-on baggage size restrictions.
- On smaller aircraft where carry-on bags must be placed in the cargo hold, you will need to remove the battery and bring the battery into the cabin with you.
- If you plan on checking your ‘smart bag’, you will first need to remove the battery and bring the battery into the cabin with you. We will not be able to accept your bag as checked baggage if the battery cannot be removed.
