How to fly with Floatee onboard
Advices and documents to prepare to easily bring your Floatee with you
Can I fly with my anti-drowning T-shirt?
Yes, the international regulation authorizes each passenger to travel with an anti-drowning T-shirt with maximum 2 additional recharges on top of the one already installed on the T-shirt.
In theory, the anti-drowning T-shirt can travel in checked luggage or hand/carry-on luggage. However, we strongly advise you to prefer checked luggage to avoid any problem with non-trained personnel.
Also, each airline has its own rules (see below).
