Small lithium battery-powered vehicles not accepted on board
Safety is Air Canada’s number one priority. Effective December 8, 2015, Air Canada will no longer accept small lithium-battery powered vehicles as checked or carry-on baggage given potential safety risks associated with the size of the batteries that power them.

Small lithium battery-powered vehicles are commonly referred to as hoverboards, electric skateboards, airwheels, mini-segways and balance wheels.

If you are planning to travel with one of these vehicles, please contact Air Canada Cargo for detailed information on dangerous goods packaging and other requirements to ensure the safe shipment of your device.

Note that mobility aids such as wheelchairs and scooters continue to be accepted in checked baggage but require special handling. You can also learn more about these and other items, which are either restricted or prohibited on board our aircraft.
