Dear passengers!


Please note that since 21.11.2016 the transportation of portable battery powered smoking devices by all passengers in checked baggage has been forbidden and allowed only in cabin baggage.



The transportation of self-balancing electronic devices powered by lithium-ion or lithium batteries IS BANNED neither as cabin baggage nor checked baggage. These devices are classified by UN as dangerous goods.


Such self-balanced electronic devices include: hoverboards, mini-segways, airwheels, solowheels, balancewheel, etc.


Lithium batteries used in mobiles, laptops, electronic cigarettes and other electronic devices can be transported only with “Power off” mode. Besides, you need to make sure that batteries packed into checked-in baggage will not be activated unintentionally. 


Spare batteries may not be placed in checked baggage!


The terminals of all spare batteries must be protected from short circuit by: enclosing them in their original retail packaging or taping over the terminals or separate plastic bags for each battery.


Whether a lithium battery can be carried by air or not depends on its configuration and either Watt-hour (Wh) rating (for rechargeable) or Lithium Content (LC) (for non-rechargeable).



To convert Amp-hours (Ah) to Watt-hours (Wh) multiply Ah x Voltage.
