Electric scooter on International Flight

For taking an electric scooter on an international flight you have to check the IATA guidelines.

Below is a list of some guidelines for lithium battery:

  1. Battery must be carried in the passenger’s cabin, not in checked luggage.
  2. The battery must not exceed a Watt-hour rating of 100 Wh.
  3. Batteries exceeding 100 Wh but not exceeding 160 Wh may be carried, but require the approval of the airline.
  4. The battery must be protected from short circuit (e.g. by placing each battery in its original retail packaging, by taping the battery’s terminals, or by placing each battery in a separate plastic bag or protective pouch).
  5. A maximum of two spare batteries per person are allowed in carry-on baggage.
  6. When transporting larger quantities of batteries, they must be packaged and marked appropriately as dangerous goods.
  7. Wet batteries are forbidden for transport in the cabin and hold of an aircraft.

Note: These guidelines are subject to change, and passengers should check with their airline for the latest information and requirements before traveling.

How do you take a scooter on a plane

  1. Determine the airline’s policy: Before planning to take your scooter on a plane, check with the airline to see if they allow scooters on board and what their restrictions are. Some airlines may allow you to bring it as a checked item while others may require it to be disassembled and stored in a specific manner.
  2. Disassemble the scooter: Many airlines require scooters to be disassembled into smaller parts for easier storage and transportation. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper disassembly.
  3. Pack the parts securely: Pack each part of the scooter in a sturdy box or bag and secure it with tape or straps to prevent damage during transit. Consider using additional cushioning such as bubble wrap or foam to protect the parts.
  4. Label each part: Label each box or bag with your name, contact information, and “Fragile” to ensure proper handling.
  5. Check the scooter as baggage: Arrange for the disassembled parts of the scooter to be checked as baggage. Make sure to inform the airline of the dimensions and weight of the boxes or bags to ensure they can be properly stored in the aircraft’s cargo hold.
  6. Arrange for assistance: If you need assistance getting to and from the gate, inform the airline in advance. They can provide you with a wheelchair or other assistive device to help you navigate the airport.
  7. Reassemble the scooter at your destination: Once you arrive at your destination, reassemble your scooter according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Enjoy your travels with the added convenience of your personal mobility device.
