Carriage of small vehicles powered by Lithium batteries.
Based on the safety policy number 001/2016 issued by the minister of Transport and public works regarding Small Vehicles Powered by Lithium Batteries (Portable Electronic Devices “PED”) such as Airwheels, Solowheels, Mini Segways and Hover boards; and due to lack of enough evidence that shows how to deactivate these items from inadvertent operation during flight; and in the aim of assuring safe flight operations with minimized possibility of any incident/ accident that may occur during flight, small vehicles powered by lithium batteries are banned from carriage by air neither as carry-on nor checked baggage nor cargo until further notice.
All operators shall abide by this policy and circulate it to their staff and handling agents.
