Dangerous goods and Prohibited items

Dangerous Goods

Dangerous goods are substances or articles that pose a risk to people, property or the environment,  due to their chemical or physical properties.

Widerøe does not transport dangerous goods. See the full list of dangerous goods in the table below.

 

Lithium batteries

Lithium batteries are used as energy source to a variety of consumer goods eg. mobile phones, children toys,  computers and medical equipment. The batteries can generate a great amount of heat if short circuited, or may catch fire if damaged. Therefore lithium batteries are considered dangerous goods that can pose a safety risk. Please read Widerøes restrictions on lithium batteries as baggage.
