Answer

Regulations on the transport of dangerous goods by passengers and crew, including mobility aids, medical equipment and PEDs, are contained in Part 8 of ICAO Doc. 9284 Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air. However, airlines may impose further restrictions for safety reasons. Therefore, it is advised to consult the Dangerous goods information provided by the airline before flying.
