NEW Loadstar LongRead: Dangerous Goods - the problem of lithium batteries
16 May, 2018

The debate over the carriage of lithium batteries in aircraft continues to rage, with new incidents cropping up on a regular basis, according to a new Loadstar LongRead.

There were two suspected incidents in February alone, one involving what was reportedly an entire payload of lithium ion batteries, and another thought to have involved a passenger’s power bank, the report says.

As a result, along with other dangerous goods, the batteries are strictly controlled by the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations and the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air, Doc 9284 AN/905.

“Dangerous goods are subject to compliance by all the supply chain stakeholders,” says general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) Sergey Lazarev.
