Information about the carriage of Apple MacBooks

Apple has recalled certain older MacBook Pros due to a battery defect. This applies to 15-inch devices sold between 2015 and 2017. These may not be taken on board an aircraft without first having a new battery installed, which is a service offered free by the manufacturer. In this context, Lufthansa refers to the safety directive of the European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA), which came into effect in February 2017. This prohibits the transport of defective or recalled lithium batteries. Our flight attendants receive appropriate training in how to deal with lithium batteries.
