BEFORE YOU FLY
Apple recently announced a recall of 15-inch MacBook Pro models manufactured between September 2015 and February 2017, citing defective batteries that could overheat and pose a fire safety risk.
Therefore, as a safety precaution, travellers will not be permitted to carry these MacBook Pro models as checked or carry-on baggage on Emirates flights unless the battery has been replaced.
Passengers carrying these MacBook Pro models should verify with Apple if their device is affected by the recall, as they will be asked to show such verification at check-in, or show that the battery has been replaced.
To check if your device is affected, and for more information on battery replacement options, please visit Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro Battery Recall Program webpage.
