100 airline drone policies in review, can I bring my drone on a plane?

Updated: Aug 11


Travelling with a drone is not always as easy as we would think, especially if going through several countries at once. We've covered in our drone rules world map which countries will welcome your drone or not but what about getting there?


"Are drones allowed on planes? International travel with my drone? Can I take my drone on a plane? Can I take my drone on-board? Will I need to check in my drone? Will my drone batteries be accepted on the plane?"


Your airline carrier might be a crucial choice to make before undertaking your epic drone travel journey around the world. In this post, we will look into airline carriers' drone policies & rules to see together if your drone is fit to be carried on-board or via checked luggage only. Our study looked at 80+ airlines' drone/batteries policies. ✅ The good news is that most airlines will welcome your drone but we also found that some major carriers will ask you to check in your drone so you better be prepared.

Before anything, what are battery standards for airlines?


Generally speaking, most airlines will follow the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) guidance & rules. When it comes to drones, your main component to worry about is the battery(ies) it uses to fly as these will be under the eye of your airline carrier.


TSA identifies & recommends 3 main categories based on your drone battery's power:

  • Up to 100-watt-hour = usually allowed (up to 20 items).

  • From 100 to 160-watt-hour = usually airline approval is required (up to 2 items).

  • From 160-watt-hour = usually forbidden.

This is exactly what most airlines will apply, such as the example below from KLM.


💡 If your drone battery power is written in milliamp hour (mAh) & voltage (V); then the formula to convert is (mAh)*(V)/1000 = Watt-hour (Wh). For example, if you have a 500mAh battery rated at 5V, the power is 500mAh * 5V / 1000 = 2.5Wh.


✅ In every case, all airlines & the TSA would recommend to place spare batteries in a fireproof bag while travelling and to always keep them with your carry on bag. If you need some fireproof bags, check some out now & get them before taking off!


How does my airline interpret these recommendations?


We've been fortunate enough to travel all around the world with different airline carriers.. So we decide to share our knowledge with you by making an extended list about airline by airline drone batteries' policy.


You can either find them by entering your airline name on this page or continue to scroll down until your airline carrier appears. If it is not listed, we're very sorry for not having had the time to do it yet but your feedback will be immediately put into action. You can do such via the Forum anytime.
