HONG Kong-based Cathay Pacific Cargo has introduced a new fire containment bag that enables it to carry standalone shipments of lithium-ion batteries safely.

'These new fire containment bags have been thoroughly tested and meet our stringent safety requirements, and they have also been approved by the US Federal Aviation Authority (F),' said cargo products manager Alex Leung.



'We are continually looking at new solutions that will cater for bigger battery sizes and bigger quantities, such as those used in the electric car industry.'



In line with IATA rules, the embargo on battery shipments on Cathay Pacific's passenger aircraft remains in force, reports London's Air Cargo News.



In addition, the airline pointed out that the new fire containment bags are not certified to carry non-rechargeable lithium metal batteries.
