Hover boards and smart balance wheels prohibited from carriage either as checked-in or carry on baggage.

Emirates is reminding all passengers to check the permitted list of carry on and checked-in items for safe and undisrupted travel this holiday season.

A popular item containing lithium batteries is the smart balance wheels also known as ‘hover boards’. Emirates prohibits the carriage of all such devices – with or without batteries - as checked–in or carry–on baggage.

To ensure the safety of passengers and crew, spare lithium batteries used for electronic devices such as cameras, mobiles phones and laptops are prohibited in checked-in baggage, but may be carried in carry-on baggage subject to the restrictions detailed in the baggage information section. All liquids, gels and aerosols, pastes, lotions, creams, drinks and other items of similar consistency must be in containers with a capacity no greater than 100ml. Those carried in containers larger than 100ml will not be accepted, even if the container is only partially filled.

For more information and full list of restricted items, please visit our baggage information section.
