Travelling safely with lithium batteries
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has produced this short educational video to help inform travellers how to carry lithium batteries safely in their luggage. Lithium batteries were named the ‘Least Wanted’ dangerous goods for 2014, after they ignited a fire inside the cargo hold of an aircraft just before passengers boarded the flight from Melbourne to Fiji. CASA has also produced the ‘Can I pack that?’ Dangerous Goods App to inform travellers about the dangers associated with these items, what they can and can’t pack in their luggage, and, if an item can be brought on board, guide them on how to do it safely.
