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.

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.
Can I still bring a carry-on bag if I also have a stroller and a purse?
Yes, each passenger may bring one carry-on bag and one personal item in addition to necessary medical and assistive devices (including strollers), one jacket or coat, a small umbrella, food for consumption en route and/or a diaper bag. There is a fee to bring a carry-on bag which must not exceed the maximum carry-on bag size.
There is not a fee to gate check a stroller. Strollers will be delivered to the gate/jetway upon arrival.
Each fare-paying passenger is allowed to take a stroller or a car seat to the boarding area. The stroller or car seat can also be checked at the time of check-in. If the stroller or car seat is taken to the gate, it will be "Gate Checked". This means that it will be stowed in the cargo hold of the aircraft and can then be picked up at gate side upon reaching the aircraft's final destination.
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."
Are there reasons to purchase additional seating?
Yes. Our mission and responsibility per our Contract of Carriage is to provide safe and comfortable air transportation for each and every customer.
Passengers wishing to secure in an aircraft seat a musical item, a child restraint device for an infant, etc., must purchase an additional ticket.
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. No baggage more than 100 lbs. will be accepted.
