With immediate effect from 12th Mar onwards, the carriage of small vehicles (Portable Electronic Devices – PED) powered by lithium batteries is prohibited in both checked baggage and cabin baggage on all Qatar Airways flights. The restriction applies regardless of the watt-hour rating of the lithium battery in such devices.

Some examples of these small lithium battery powered vehicles are: airwheel, solowheel, hoverboard, mini-segway, balance wheel.

The prohibition is immediately applied due to concerns regarding the questionable quality of such small vehicles and potential fire hazard associated with the batteries and since the safety of the passengers and crew comes first.
