TRANSPORTATION OF SMART LUGGAGE
The term smart luggage is used to designate luggage equipped with devices incorporating lithium batteries, allowing, for example, charging external devices, the integration of GPS tracking devices, self-weighing or a digital locking system.
But these batteries are unstable and may experience a phenomenon of thermal runaway. In recent years, incidents with lithium-ion batteries have multiplied.
Since January 15, 2018, the International Air Transport Association has decreed the prohibition total to carry any smart luggage whose lithium battery is designed to charge other equipment and can not be removed from the luggage. Twinjet aligns with this decision.
With regard to smart luggage whose battery can be removed, these are accepted on board as cabin baggage or checked baggage, only if the 3 following conditions are fulfilled:
The rules above do not apply to smart baggage powered by batteries lithium button.
- The lithium battery must be removed from the smart luggage.
- The lithium battery must be transported in the cabin by the passenger.
- The lithium battery must not be reinserted in the smart luggage, as long as the destination is not reached.
