Ban on 'Knee Defenders' or Similar Devices

The US Transportation Security Adminstration (TSA) stipulates that passengers travelling into and out of US commercial airports, can no longer access their checked baggage once baggage screening is completed. Hence, we recommend you to remove all items that you will need onboard, before checking in your baggage.

 

As also advised by the TSA, passengers are asked to leave their baggage unlocked or use a TSA accepted and recognized lock to facilitate the search process. The TSA will not be liable for any damage caused to locked bags if they are opened for screening. For bags opened during screening, the screeners will close it with a tamper-evident seal and insert a notice in your bag to inform you that the bag has been opened.

 

As this procedure is governed by US legislation and beyond the control of the airline, we regret that we cannot be held liable for damage or loss of items from the baggage. You may visit the Transportation Security Administration website for further information.
