Dangerous Goods

Safety is our Top Priority.

Articles or substances capable of posing a significant risk to health, safety, or property when transported by air are classified as “Dangerous Goods” by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Although we are unable to provide a comprehensive list of items considered “dangerous” due to constant changes in regulations, current examples of dangerous goods include:

  • flammable materials such as propane, gasoline, and matches
  • magnetic materials, lithium batteries, etc.
  • vessels containing compressed gas such as scuba tanks.
