Air Carriers Already Rejecting Lithium-ion Battery Shipments?
The recently posted Addendum II to the 57th Ed. IATA DGR included the new restrictions that start April 1—including the prohibition of stand-alone lithium-ion batteries (UN 3480) from passenger aircraft—and some updated state and operator variations. However, the latest Addendum may not have included all the revised operator variations or “temporary embargoes” on items like lithium batteries.
Given the seemingly fluid nature of these lithium battery rules, if you are shipping lithium-ion batteries and have concerns about whether or not your shipment will be accepted, be sure to contact your air carrier and get clear instructions on what is and is not permitted.

Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!
