Here is what you need to know if you travel with a "smart bag". A smart bag is a bag that has built-in charging, location tracking or other battery-powered technology.
You may bring your 'smart bag' onto the plane with you, provided it meets carry-on baggage size restrictions.
On smaller aircraft where carry-on bags must be placed in the cargo hold, you will need to remove the battery and bring the battery into the cabin with you.
If you plan on checking your ‘smart bag’, you will first need to remove the battery and bring the battery into the cabin with you. Air Canada will not accept your bag as checked baggage if the battery cannot be removed.
