Flying with an Avalanche Rescue Backpack
Mammut replacement cylinder or a spare to take with you, full details of the Mammut cylinders are listed below.
If you are flying with an extra cylinder please make sure it is packed inside the airbag, with the primary cylinder disconnected and with the the yellow seals in place. Flying within Europe with your Mammut bag in the hold luggage is allowed, more details below and if you need any further advice email or phone.
As a quick reference, Flying with a Snowpulse airbag, you must inform the airline at least 2 weeks prior to flying, print off two copies of the IATA regs. put one copy with the Snowpulse airbag and keep the other copy on you.
It is quite normal even after booking your airbag onto the flight to have a call from out size luggage, therefore please allow extra time when checking in.
We have found that most airlines are now aware of Avalanche rescue backpacks, however some questions still arise with security at airports.
Snowshepherd and others have a self help group on Flying with airbags on the Snowheads.com web site. This has some really good info and is probably the best airline guide that is available. LINK
