Vietnam Airlines Enforcing Ban on Damaged or
Recalled Lithium Batteries
Vietnam Airlines has started enforcing a ban on
transporting Lithium batteries and electronic devices using
Lithium batteries which might affect flight safety on all flights.
Specifically, Vietnam Airlines prohibits
carrying on board any form of:
- Damaged lithium batteries or those being
recalled by the manufacturer; and - Electronic devices using
damaged Lithium batteries.
Electronic devices using non-damaged Lithium
batteries but being recalled are only allowed as carry-on luggage
and must be turned off. These products are prohibited as checked
Electronic devices using damaged Lithium
batteries or on the recall list are prohibited from transportation
unless they have their batteries replaced by the manufacturer and
have been removed from the recall list.
Electronic devices that use Lithium
batteries on the recall list carried on board must be powered off
before boarding and during the entire duration of the flight.
Passengers who intentionally violate the
regulations may be denied boarding and fined accordingly.
