Baggage information

Safety notice

Effective January 15, you must remove spare lithium batteries or lithium batteries that are part of bags themselves (sometimes referred to as "smart bags") before checking or gate-checking baggage, as smart bag batteries cannot be transported in the cargo hold. These batteries can be transported in your carry-on baggage. Bags with non-removable lithium batteries are not allowed on any United flights, including United Express® flights.
