Dangerous goods

There are certain items that you are not allowed to carry either in your hand baggage or your checked baggage or you may carry them only on certain conditions. These forbidden articles, called dangerous goods, pose a risk to health, safety, property and the environment.  
  If such forbidden items are discovered in your baggage, Moldavian Airlines will refuse to carry them as such. You can still transport them as air cargo provided all the packing conditions are fulfilled according to the current IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. Please announce us by the time of booking whether you want to transport some of the items listed below or similar articles.

Dangerous goods include items like fireworks, aerosols, medical or clinical thermometers, lithium batteries, bleaches, paints, varnishes, safety matches or lighters, resins, medicinal or toilet articles, alcoholic beverages, heat producing articles, camping stoves etc.
