Ion batteries, the ban is not a regulatory requirement.
However, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is reviewing its position in consultation with airlines and the US Federal Aviation Administration, which recently published a new study on this issue.
Last year, in a test conducted by the FAA\'s technology center in Atlantic City, a container containing 5000 lithium had a fire.
This prompted aircraft manufacturers to declare that there was an \"unacceptable risk\" for the equipment \".
Although there is no evidence that the disappearance of MH370 was caused by the fire, a temporary report from the Malaysian government shows that the Boeing 777 is transporting a large number of lithium-ion batteries.
The report also mentioned that 221 kg shipments had not been inspected for safety prior to loading on MH370, but were physically inspected by cargo and customs officials.
Experts have rejected the theory that the plane was suddenly shut down and then disappeared. Safety first . . .
