The Transportation Security Administration is implementing new security measures including a prohibition of the transportation on board domestic or international flights to or from the U.S. of printer or toner cartridges weighing 16 ounces or more. Accordingly, effective Monday, November 8, 2010, passengers are prohibited from transporting these items in either carry-on or checked baggage. Visit the TSA web site for a complete list of items.
- No household items: bleaches, drain cleaners and solvents contain dangerous chemicals which can cause toxic fumes and corrosion.
- No flammable liquids: fuel, paints, solvents, adhesives, alcoholic beverages higher than 140 proof and flammable gases such as lighter refills and camping gas might leak and cause a fire.
- No fireworks: signal flares and other explosives which might detonate due to their sensitive nature.
- No other hazardous materials: strike-anywhere matches, gasoline-powered tools, spray cans, self-inflating rafts, wet-cell batteries, poisons, infectious substances, mace and pepper spray.
- Wheelchairs - only wheelchairs with certain types of batteries will be accepted.
Use of e-cigarettes onboard the aircraft remains prohibited at all times. E-cigarettes are not permitted in any checked baggage or in any external baggage compartment of the aircraft, as e-cigarettes have been found by the FAA to be a fire risk.
Due to their potential to overheat or cause fire when activated, as determined by the FAA and ICAO, electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers or any battery-powered portable electronic smoking device (“E-cigarettes”) are not permitted in any checked baggage or in any external baggage compartment of the aircraft. Please inform a Cape Air agent if you have e-cigarettes in any of your baggage. Recharging of e-cigarettes and/or the batteries on board the aircraft remains prohibited at all times.
Spare Lithium Batteries:
Because lithium batteries present a risk of both igniting and fueling fires in aircraft cargo/baggage compartments, spare lithium batteries are not permitted in any checked baggage or in any external baggage compartment of the aircraft. Please inform a Cape Air agent if you have any spare lithium batteries in any of your baggage.
Spare lithium batteries must be individually protected so as to prevent short circuits (by placement in original retail packaging or by otherwise insulating terminals, e.g., by taping over exposed terminals or placing each battery in a separate plastic bag or protective pouch). Each battery must not exceed the following: for lithium metal batteries, a lithium content of 2 grams; or for lithium ion batteries, a Watt-hour rating of 100 Wh.
Lithium Battery Powered Self-Balancing Recreational Mobility Devices (“hoverboards”):
- Because of the risk of igniting, these devices are not accepted for transport on any Cape Air flight. Examples of lithium battery powered self-balancing recreational mobility devices include Airwheel, Solowheel and hoverboard.
No personal oxygen supplies, including oxygen concentrators, are not permitted to be used on board and Cape Air is not authorized to provide medical oxygen. Personal oxygen cylinders may not be carried nor used on board.
