A normal beixo folding bike is usually allowed on the plane. The check in procedure normally must be done via the special baggage or sports equipment.

An electric beixo – with battery – is more difficult to carry. The rules for transporting the Li-Ion battery differ per company. Sometimes the battery is allowed as hand luggage, sometimes the battery is not allowed at all. This is because the batteries fall under the Dangerous Goods Regulation. You can read more about this on the site of the IATA.

A call to your airline always provides clarity.
