Prohibited and regulated products

Certain items known as “dangerous goods” are considered dangerous when they pose a risk to your health, your safety and that of the aircraft.

These items are either prohibited for check-in, whether in the hold or cabin, or regulated, i.e. they can be transported but under certain conditions.

The regulations for air freight transport are very strict.

You must declare the transport of dangerous goods: lithium batteries, oxygen or air cylinders in gaseous form, cartridges
for small arms, non-flammable gas cartridges chemical agent control equipment, diving lamps and soldering irons, mercury thermometer or barometer.

If in doubt, ask the check-in teams for advice.

Good to know

During the check-in of our passengers and with the aim of ensuring the safety of our flights, our agents may request the opening of luggage.

These will not be transported if this control is refused.

Finally, in the event of an inaccurate declaration on the nature of a product or the discovery of dangerous materials in one of your luggage, you expose yourself to criminal proceedings. The goods will be immediately confiscated and examined by the competent authority.
