All IATA airlines require documentation when transporting batteries, and especially Li-ion batteries. This information and documentation is available from authorised dealers. It is highly unlikely that any airline will transport mobility scooters or batteries without prior notice, so contact the airline as soon as you have organised your itinerary and be prepared to submit the appropriate documentation.
Li-ion batteries must be carried as hand luggage and must not exceed 300 watt hours in capacity. You will need MSDS documents and possibly test results. It is also advisable to have sample letters that have been issued in the past to Luggie customers. All these are available from authorised dealers or through this site after registering your scooter. You can also read stories from travellers and their experiences with airlines in "Testimonials" (above), and on selected dealer websites.
