Dangerous objects

Before talking about the transport conditions for your baggage, regardless it`s cabin or checked-in baggage, we need to understand them together. A Boeing 737 weighs approximately 60 tons, to which 9 tones, equivalent of approximately 165 passengers on board, is added. Also, the weight of approximately 150 checked-in bags and 150 cabin bags should be considered. These are part of the reasons such strict security measures are in place regarding baggage transport.

While flying Blue Air, we kindly ask you to respect the ban on carrying any of the materials and substances listed below. This helps us to ensure the safety of yourself and your fellow passengers.

Prohibited materials and substances include:

  • Flammable or highly combustible materials, which pose a threat to passengers, crew or the integrity of the aircraft. Some examples would be ammunition, gases (or pressure containers filled with gas), flammable liquid fuels, fireworks, alcohol exceeding 70%, acetone, etc
  • Any substances marked as being chemical or toxic - such as alkalis, acids, corrosive and/or bleaching substances, incapacitating sprays (usually used for self-defense), radioactive materials, and poisons.
  • Biological threats, which include infectious hazardous materials such as contaminated blood, viruses, bacteria

About Bucharest

Not everything is suitable for putting into the hold. We recommend you keep the following items with you at all times: medicine, cash and credit cards, personal ID, insurance policies, contracts and other important documents, jewelry, fragile items and electronic devices (laptops, cameras, chargers).

At Blue Air, we want to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort! For this reason, the following items are forbidden in the security restricted area or the passenger cabin of the plane:

Electronic cigarettes Weapons Sharp or pointed weapons Blunt objects

Electronic cigarettes

  • You can carry electronic cigarettes such as e-cigars and other vaporizers (containing batteries) in your carry-on baggage only. These are not allowed in the checked-in baggage, as they pose a potential risk to other people’s belongings or even the integrity of the aircraft. Please note that the use of electronic cigarettes (including recharging them and/or batteries) is not permitted on board the plane.

Spare batteries and charging units

  • It may not seem like much of a threat, but we like to take every precautionary measure to ensure you have a safe flight. That is why items which have the primary purpose as being a power source, such as: lithium metal or lithium ion cells, batteries, power banks, etc. must be individually protected by placing them in their original retail packaging or by insulating their terminals. These can only be placed in your carry-on baggage. Recharging batteries during your flight is not permitted.

We hope we’ve given you a clear explanation of these restrictions and that you now have a better understanding of why they are imposed
