Smart bags are usually a hard-shelled bag, and have built-in electronic capabilities that often include USB charging ports, smart locks, GPS tracking capabilities, Wi-Fi and hotspot connectivity.
In the interest of safety for our customers and employees, we don’t allow smart bags with nonremovable lithium batteries on board. If the bag is checked at any time, including if you have to check your carry-on at the gate, you must remove the battery first before boarding.
