For air travel, the transport of certain items on board the aircraft might affect your safety.
What are the hazardous materials?
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS are objects or substances which are capable of creating a significant risk to your health, safety, and carried by your personal property during air travel.
Hazardous materials may be objects of daily use: dry ice, sprays and perfumes, bleach, batteries, adhesives and many other items that do not normally raise our concerns during their use.
How hazardous materials may affect the safety and comfort of the flight?
- Some items may automatically by friction or heat generation kindle a fire in the passenger's baggage (safety matches, lighter, diving flashlight);
- Some substances (bleach) can dramatically stimulate the oxidation of the combustion of other materials.
IN THE PAST MANY AIRCRAFT DISASTERS WAS CAUSED BY CARRIAGE OF DANGEROUS GOODS BY PASSENGERS
