What is the policy for transporting Dangerous Goods?

Dangerous Goods are articles or substances that may pose health and safety hazards to its passengers or potentially damage the aircraft. They are also referred to as restricted articles, hazardous materials and dangerous cargo. Transportation of such goods is primarily regulated by Civil Aviation Regulations. Goods falling under the category of Dangerous Goods are not allowed in passenger or crew-checked baggage or cabin baggage, with some exceptions.

Please note – in some countries, lithium batteries as found in laptops, mobile phones and other portable electronic devices, are now considered dangerous items, and may be banned from checked baggage.

Countries that enforce this rule currently include China. Before you travel, please contact your departure airport or your local Emirates office for more information.
