Lithium-ion batteries can no longer be carried on passenger flights

22 February 2016
 

This temporary decision has been taken by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on February, 21st 2016 following the request of several airlines and pilots unions. It should enter into force by April, 1st 2016. New packing requirements should be implemented in 2018.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the Asiana Airlines 747F crash in 2011 was the direct consequence of the bad conditioning of these batteries. Other incidents linked to these Lithium-ion batteries occurred and forced several companies to stop their carriage.

> The carry-on electronic devices (laptops, mobile phones, etc…) will remain authorized on board for passengers.
