The International Air Transport Association (IATA), the trade association for the world’s airlines, is to impose limits on the number of portable electronic devices (PED’s) passengers can carry on aircraft.
Measures have been introduced in the latest IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) to reduce the risk caused by carrying lithium batteries. If the batteries overheat, they carry a fire risk.
Coming into force on January 1, 2018, changes to the regulations will restrict passengers and crew from travelling with more than 15 PEDs, and to a maximum of 20 spare batteries.
