Review Allegiant's Luggage Limitations of Liability

What happens if I board and there isn’t room for my carry-on luggage?

In the case that your bag is oversized and/or there is not room on board the aircraft for your carry-on bag, your bag will be gate-checked and you will be able to retrieve it at baggage claim at your destination airport.  
If your bag is gate-checked, we recommend you remove any valuables, keys, electronics, medications, fragile items, and items you may need during the flight. 

What is the process for boarding with a battery operated device?

Battery Powered Mobility Aids:
Battery powered mobility devices (wheelchairs/scooters, etc.) will be checked at no additional charge at the ticket counter or gate and transported if the cargo compartment is large enough and if all federal HAZMAT safety regulations are satisfied.
Additionally, it is recommended that all removable parts (i.e., cushions, arm or leg rests, and side guards) be stowed in an overhead bin or under a seat if the parts fit and also meet all FAA safety requirements for onboard stowage.
In some situations, it will be necessary to remove the battery from the passenger’s wheelchair or other mobility device, and to package it separately:

  • Any spillable battery contained in a wheelchair that cannot be loaded, stowed, and secured and unloaded in an upright position
  • Any battery that is not securely attached to a wheelchair
  • Any lithium-ion battery

Segway devices cannot be accepted for transport as the lithium-ion batteries exceed the allowable battery size limit.
Proper labeling of battery cables and/or providing detailed disconnection and reconnection directions will assist ground personnel at the departure or destination city to easily disconnect/reconnect the battery to the wheelchair/scooter.
Click here to download the wheelchair description form.
Wet Cell (Spillable) Batteries
If your wheelchair/scooter is powered by a wet cell (spillable) battery, reveals no obvious defects or leaking, the battery will be removed, placed in a protective battery box, as required by federal HAZMAT safety regulations, and loaded into the cargo compartment of the aircraft at no additional charge.
Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) Batteries
If your wheelchair/scooter is powered by a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery, Allegiant personnel must be able to determine that the battery is approved for transportation and must meet specific criteria, such as:

  • Show no signs of any defects
  • Battery terminals protected from short circuit
  • Securely attached to the mobility aid
  • Electrical circuits are isolated.

If your device is specifically designed to allow its battery to be easily removed (i.e. a collapsible scooter, etc.), the battery must be:

  • Carried onboard to be stored in the cabin
  • Protected from short circuit
  • Batteries must have 25 grams of equivalent lithium content (ELC) or less, or rated 300 watt hours or less
  • Labeled, or provide documentation showing the battery has been UN P.T. lll Section 38.3 tested
  • Allegiant will not transport more than 2 batteries at 25 grams ELC or rated 300 watt hours or less per person

Dry Cell (Non-spillable) Batteries
If your wheelchair/scooter is powered by a dry cell (non-spillable) battery, it should not require disconnection from the device, unless the device meets any of the criteria listed below:

  • Not securely attached to the wheelchair or mobility aid
  • Does not have a means of preventing activation (key turned to “off” and removed, on/off switch in the “off” position, etc.)
  • Has obvious defects

Other Assistive Devices
Other assistive devices, such as walkers, canes, crutches, CPAP machines, etc., that can be stowed in compliance with FAA safety regulations, will not be counted toward your one carry-on plus one personal item limit. If an assistive device cannot be stored safely in the cabin, we will tag your device and transport it in the cargo compartment.

What kind of car seat or child restraint device is acceptable?

Convertible-type car seats designed for forward or backward installation in a forward-facing aircraft seat. Many of these carry the FMVSS.213 insignia and/or language indicating that they are "approved for use in motor vehicles and on aircraft." Any child restraint device manufactured between January 1, 1961 and February 25, 1985, must have the following label: "This child restraint device conforms to all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards." Any child restraint device manufactured since February 26, 1985, must have both of the following labels: "This child restraint device conforms to all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards" and "This restraint is certified for use in motor vehicles and aircraft."

What type of sporting equipment can I bring when I travel?

Each piece of sporting equipment will be considered a checked bag with all applicable fees applied per person, per bag, per segment. All Baggage Fees are non-refundable. Applicable fees will be applied for those bags exceeding the 40 lbs. weight limit and eighty inches size limits. The total number of bags allowed may not exceed 5 per passenger.

Where can I find a list of restricted items and hazardous materials?

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has an approved list of items that can be brought on board. Please contact TSA at 1-866-289-9673 or visit the TSA website.

Where can I find items left on a plane or in the terminal?

Items found in the terminal or on the aircraft are turned into the local baggage service department. All lost articles are logged and held at the local baggage office until the passenger claims them, or makes arrangements to have them shipped at the owner's expense. All items found in the Lost & Found inventory are held for thirty (30) days. After that time, unclaimed items are forwarded to System Baggage Service for salvage. All high value items are locked in a secure area whenever possible to reduce the possibility of theft. All passengers with Lost & Found issues are asked to go to the airport where the articles were lost. Passengers may also complete a lost item form by clicking here.
