Jet Airways Smart Luggage restrictions from January 15: What you should know

Jet Airways Smart Luggage restrictions from January 15: What you should know

Jet Airways on Thursday issued a baggage advisory restricting passengers from carrying "smart luggage" that come fitted with non-removable lithiumion batteries on its flight.

Lithium batteries powering smart bags have been known to overheat and explode.

The crew members eventually returned to their stations, and the flight, a Boeing 777 with 324 passengers and 14 cabin crew, landed safely.

It said that the decision was taken in tune with the regulations of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and applies to both check-in and cabin baggage. "If the batteries are fixed into the bag, airlines worry flight attendants will not be able to reach them in the overhead compartments before they do serious damage to the aircraft", a Jet Airways official said. "Post-removal, batteries can be carried separately in cabin baggage only", the airline said.

Guests checking in are required to uninstall batteries of their Smart Luggage prior to check-in.

From January 15, several airlines in the United States like Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines will ban smart luggage with non-removable batteries, The Verge had reported in December.

The airline will not be liable for any damage/malfunction of the smart luggage in any form due to un-installation or re-installation, the advisory added. "The liability of the airline and its staff is limited to the extent of only advising and guiding guests to ensure compliance with these procedures", Jet explained.
