    VSbulletin 034- Smart Bags

     

    We need to let you know that with immediate effect, Virgin Atlantic are not able to accept Smart Bags with
    non-removable lithium batteries as hand or checked baggage on any flight.

    Smart Bags with removable batteries will be accepted if the battery is removed and carried separately in hand baggage.

    What is a Smart Bag?
    Smart Bags are bags with built-in features such as GPS locators, USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, charging ports, remote lock systems and weight scales.

    Smart Bag Policy Change on American Airlines_December 1, 2017

    Small Logo American Airlines

     

    At American, we’re constantly evaluating our procedures to ensure the best experience for your travellers.  That’s why we’re changing our policy regarding “smart bags,” also known as “smart luggage,” effective January 15, 2018.

     

    Smart bags contain lithium battery power banks, which can pose a possible risk if stored in the cargo hold of the aircraft.  Beginning January 15, American will require that the battery must be removed from any traveller’s smart bag in order to check it onto any American or American Eagle flight. 

     

    Travellers may leave batteries installed in carry-on bags; however, the battery must be removable in case checking the bag becomes necessary.  Smart bags from which batteries cannot be removed will not be accepted in the cabin or luggage hold.

     

    While this change is not required by the FAA at this time, we believe it will enhance safety and is in the best interest of our team members and our customers.  We realise this policy change may impact you and your travellers and want to give you advance notice to minimize any inconvenience. 

     

     

    As always, thank you for your business.

     

    Sincerely,

    American Airlines

  • Banned Airlines

    Airline carriers subject to a ban.

    LEGAL NOTICE
    The civil aviation authorities of Member States of the European Community are only able to inspect aircraft of airlines that operate flights to and from Community airports; and in view of the random nature of such inspections, it is not possible to check all aircraft that land at each Community airport.

    The fact that an airline is not included in the Community list does not, therefore, automatically mean that it meets the applicable safety standards.

    Where an airline which is currently included in the Community list deems itself to be in conformity with the necessary technical elements and requirements prescribed by the applicable international safety standards, it may request the Commission to commence the procedure for its removal from the list.

    Every effort has been made to verify the exact identity of all airlines included on the Community list – namely through the inclusion of: the specific letter codes assigned (and unique) to each airline by the ICAO, the State of certification and the air operator certificate (or operating licence) number.

    Nonetheless, absolute verification has not been possible in all cases owing to a total lack of information surrounding some airlines that might be operating on the border of, or altogether outside, the recognised international aviation regime. It can therefore not be excluded that there might be companies operating in good faith under the same trading name as an airline included on the Community list.
