Passenger Dangerous Goods Corner
- May 10, 2016-
Some dangerous goods can only be transported on an aircraft if a competent person or organization properly packs them. These items are listed in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and must be prepared, labeled and declared in accordance with them.
However, some items listed in the regulations may be carried onboard the aircraft by passengers and crew if they fulfill the listed restrictions and limitations. The Table 2.3.A (pdf) of the 57th edition of the DGR summarizes the information for items that may be carried in either checked or carry-on baggage. The table has been updated with new provisions related to the carriage of e-cigarettes and reformatted for 2016. This document is also available in French (pdf), German (pdf), Spanish (pdf) and Russian (pdf).
