Plane Talk - Dangerous goods (Pt 1) - Transporting parachutes & life jackets

Plane Talk // Sport// Travel // April 13, 2018

Calling all sailors, pilots, skiers and lovers of extreme sports. Do you ever want to travel on an aircraft with a life vest, a parachute or an avalanche rescue backpack. Can you travel with these items?

Are there some conditions I might not have considered to make it a little tricky?

This week Chaitan Jain from IATA looks at how we can transport our extreme sports equipment via air and how to best avoid the snags that we might come across when trying to carry parachutes and life jackets on board an aircraft.

Also, Katt seems to have a whole list of extreme sports she wants to try this year.
