Dangerous goods

Items/substances classified as dangerous goods are transported in air traffic according to special international regulations (Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air ICAO Doc. 9284AN/905), which prescribe certain exceptions to the prohibition of carriage in carry-on and/or checked baggage.

For security reasons, dangerous substances or items are prohibited from being transported in baggage, or it is prohibited to carry them on oneself or with oneself. However, under certain conditions, international regulations allow passengers to carry dangerous items or substances either in carry-on baggage, checked baggage, or on their person. Passengers should be aware that certain airlines have the right to refuse the carriage of certain dangerous goods or items, and additional restrictions of individual countries (depending on the destination) may limit or prohibit the carriage of certain dangerous goods or items in the interest of air traffic safety.


Information published about the transport of dangerous goods in passenger traffic is taken from the current edition of the Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations). International air transport associations (IATA – International Air Transport Association): For more details on the transport of dangerous goods, we advise you to contact your airline at least 24 hours before your trip. The airline has the right not to accept certain items for carriage.
