What Are The Rules for Travelling with a Drone?

It’s summer, which means one thing, holiday season. And of course, we want to bring our dearest family member with us – our drone. But what are the rules for travelling with a drone? Unfortunately, many airlines are vague about the rules for bringing a drone onboard. So we’ve put together a mini summary of some information which might help you out. 

– Purchase a “Safe Bag” for lithium batteries where you can place the batteries to the drone. We have flown several times with our Phantom 4 adv in the box without being asked for this, but better be safe than sorry. 

– Store both the drone and its batteries in your hand luggage. 

– Unpack the drone by the safety control in the same way as you do with a laptop. 

– Check https://uavcoach.com/ before your trip to study the local rules of the country your visiting. We sometimes contact local drone pilots as well to ask for advice. 

  • Here are some examples of airlines who allow drones onboard (according to information found online): 
  • Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) 
  • Norwegian Air 
  • Ryan Air 
  • EasyJet 
  • Delta Airlines 
  • American Airlines 
  • Southwest Airlines 
  • JetBlue Airlines 
  • Emirates 
  • Lufthansa 
  • British Airways (BA) 
  • AirFrance 

Do you have any other examples of airlines allowing or restricting drones? Leave a comment below, we’d love to hear about your experiences and help grow the VReel knowledge base.

We came across you and your brother through your drone flying when VReel started off as a drone platform. How long have you been flying a drone and how did you get into it? We’ve been flying drones for many years, probably around seven years, more or less. In Holland we were one of the first companies using drones for making videos and photography.
