I am not a lawyer, but here goes ..
The FAA is Federal ( USA ) I understand.
IATA is the international body, with international jurisdiction, I understand.

Here's some IATA doco for you to read and absorb ( or seek proper qualified advice, which I cannot give );

https://www.iata.org/whatwedo/cargo/...nt-2015-en.pdf

OK all of that is great info for somebody that wants to ship a few Segways to have a vacation and not rent or whatever. If everyone will just read earlier posts last year-ish from me and others you will see the Federal regulations (CFR) that apply to those that use a Segway as an additive mobility device- along the lines covered in the ADA title 3 language from years ago.
Can't believe the uninformed banter by some here. Keep thinking its 'shipping lion batteries'. Its an accommodation granted by the ACAA that allows/encourages airlines to develop policies that provide safe transport of mobility devices - not just batteries! Most have, depending on the size of the aircraft. Just check with the airline, domestic and international. Many have Segway-specific reference info available to their res and CSAs.

It doesn't matter if you believe a shred of what you read here. Just call!!!

Good luck, whatever you decide.

ARGH!

https://www.allegiantair.com/passengers-special-needs
(the lithium battery section- "For mobility aids where the lithium-ion battery is installed as an essential part of the device, there is no watt hour limit for the battery"

http://phmsa.dot.gov/portal/site/PHM...extfmt=default

(last paragraph)

http://phmsa.dot.gov/portal/site/PHM...extfmt=default


14 CFR 382 (ACAA) was amended and gives each airline the opportunity to make rules for these devices that have li-on batteries larger than the "removable" device batteries.

...and the list goes on... As I have said several times in numerous posts, IF its truly a mobility aid, IF you legitimately use a Segway as such, and IF the airline has put a policy in place after the PHMSA, ICAO and IATA changes about li-on batteries on mobility devices...just call the airline you use and ask.

Happy travels!
