What are Dangerous Goods (DG)?

Dangerous Goods are items that may endanger the safety of an aircraft or persons on board the aircraft. Dangerous Goods are also known as restricted articles, hazardous materials and dangerous cargo.

Many common items found in your household can be considered dangerous goods for the purpose of air transport. Some examples include mobile phones, hand sanitizers, and perfumes.

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), International Air Transport Association (IATA) or the local Civil Aviation Authority Regulations govern their carriage onboard aircraft.
