Many Airlines are no longer accepting smart bags or smart luggage with non-removable lithium batteries, due to the potential for powerful battereies to overheat and pose a fire hazard risk during flight.

Smart bags have grown in popularity in the past year and often include lithium-ion batteries to power build-in features like GPS and Bluetooth locators, weight scales that prevent over packing, USB ports to charge personal devices and motors to propel the bag.

Please plan accordingly. If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Travel Office at ext 2342 or ext 2345, or your airline directly.
