Air Transportation of Dangerous Goods

Air transportation of dangerous goods, being more dangerous by nature, requires a more restrictive approach and is governed commercially by the International Air Transporter's Association (IATA). There are very specific packaging and documentation requirements. Each shipment is inspected before take-off, and may be rejected if not properly prepared causing delays and loss of business. Several products exempted under the surface regulations are fully regulated by air.

Shippers: AIR-101
