Bringing Your Drone On Airplanes

For a detailed guide to bringing your drone on airplanes click here. All drones should be brought on carry on luggage if possible. This is because according to the Montreal Convention, airlines are only liable for losses up to ±$1,700 USD (1,288 SDR). When traveling internationally, theft and lost luggage can be common issues, particularly if your flight has many connections.

If your drone is worth more than $1,000 USD and you cannot bring it onto the plane you should consider shipping it with DHL, FedEx, or UPS instead and fully insure the shipment.

You should NOT place drone batteries in your checked baggage. All drone batteries should be placed in a Medium Size LiPo Battery Bag like the one shown here in the link and brought onto the plane in your carry on bag. Lithium-ion batteries are considered “dangerous goods” by airlines and rules surrounding these batteries on planes are EXTREMELY strict due to multiple incidents of these batteries catching fire.

Failure to properly pack lithium-ion batteries in a bag such as the one shown in the link above can result in the airline seizing them, you getting fined, or being denied boarding.
