India’s aviation regulatory, Director General Civil Aviation, is banning certain types of Apple MacBook Pro laptops sold between September 2015 and February 2017 from flights. The regulatory body on Monday said that these laptops had been found as a fire hazard because of their batteries that can overheat.

Hereafter, the banned MacBook Pro laptops will not be allowed in the airport check-ins unless they have their battery replaced or they are deemed safe by Apple.

 

Apple earlier had issued a battery recall for two years for some laptops sold from 2015. Apple released a note that says, “Apple has determined that, in a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk. Affected units were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017 and product eligibility is determined by the product serial number.”

After Apple has released an announcement, FAA, the aviation regulator in the US had decided to ban and recalled MacBook Pro laptops from flights.

How to check if you can carry a MacBook Pro or not

There is a tool provided by Apple on its official website. Apple users can go there and can figure out whether their laptop has been affected or not. If your laptop is affected, the company will be replacing the battery for free of cost.

Apple stated the same on its website saying, “Find an Apple Authorized Service Provider to have your battery replaced. Your MacBook Pro will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program. Service may take 1-2 weeks.”

So, check if your MacBook Pro falls under the hazardous devices and if it does, get your battery replaced if you are planning to travel in a flight anytime soon.
