- If you’re traveling with a battery powered wheelchair, turn the device off before checking it, protect the terminals against short circuits and make sure the battery pack is securely attached to the structure. Advise our staff about the manufacturer's assembly instructions or if there is any specific requirement for transit in the hold. When checking the wheelchair you must indicate if the batteries are spillable or non-spillable, so we can determine the appropriate handling.
