Dangerous Goods are articles or substances that may pose a risk to health, safety, personal property or the environment, when transported. LAN CARGO will ensure that the most rigorous security processes are followed while moving these products.

Our staff is certified for the reception and handling of all types of Dangerous Goods suitable for being transported. At all stations there is a place assigned for the storage of such products, in accordance with national and international regulations and requierements, which allow us to manage the shipments as safely as possible.

For transportation, these products must comply with classification, identification, packaging, labeling and documentation, as described in the IATA dangerous goods regulations and all regulations that apply.

At the time of reception, the staff of LAN CARGO will make a thorough review of documents and cargo, and provide comprehensive feedback in case there is any difference with the requirements of national and international regulations.

Classification of Dangerous Goods

Class 1: Explosives


Class or division



Articles and substances having mass explosion hazard. Prohibited to transport by air.


Articles and substances having a projection hazard but not a mass explosion. Prohibited to transport by air.


Articles and substances, which have a risk of deflagration (fire). Prohibited to transport on passenger flights, and only some of these articles and substances are allowed in cargo flights.


Articles and substances presenting no significant risk. Prohibited to transport on passenger flights, and only some of these articles and substances are allowed in cargo flights.


Articles and substances that are less sensitive but with mass explosion hazard. Prohibited to transport by air.


Extremely insensitive articles and substances, without mass explosion hazard. Prohibited to transport by air.


Class 2: Gases


Class or division



Flammable gases.


Non-toxic, non-flammable gases.


Toxic gases.


Class 3: Flammable Liquids


Class or division



Includes all liquids, mixtures of liquids or liquids containing suspended solids and having a flash point of 60 ° C or less in closed crucible (e.g., paints, alcohols, solvents).


Class 4: Flammable Solids


Class or division



Flammable solids (e.g. matches), self-reactive substances and solid, desensitized explosives (e.g., nitrocellulose solution).


Substances liable to spontaneous combustion (e.g. wet cotton).


Substances, when coming in contact with water, emit flammable gases (e.g. potassium).


Class 5: Oxidizers and Organic Peroxides


Class or division



Oxidizing substances, without being self-combustible that can contribute to the combustion of other materials, releasing oxygen (e.g., Chilean nitrate, sodium nitrate).


Organic peroxides, thermally unstable substances, sensitive to impact and temperature changes. Its molecular structure is very unstable. To be transported requires liquids or solids to desensitize or dilute (e.g. acetyl peroxide).


Class 6: Poisonous and Etiological Materials


Class or division



Poisonous Materials: if swallowed, inhaled or come into contact with skin, can cause death or harm human health (e.g. pesticides, insecticides, rodenticides).


Etiological Materials: those that are known or reasonably believed to contain pathogens.


Category B biological substances: such substances are known or reasonably expected to contain pathogens and are defined as microorganisms (including bacteria, viruses, rickettsia, fungi) and other agents such as prions, which can cause disease in humans or animals.


Class 7: Radioactive Materials


Class or division



Slightly radioactive material with a low level of radiation at the surface of the package. Transport index = 0


Radiation level higher than Class I white. Transport index > 0 <1.

III- Yellow

Radiation level greater than the yellow category II. Transport index > 1 < 10 *.


* When the Transport Index is above 10, the package must be transported under condition of exclusive use.


Class 8: Corrosives


Class or division



These are substances that when in contact with living tissue, by chemical action can cause severe damage or, in the event of leaks or spills, can damage and even destroy other goods or cause damage to the transportation (e.g. hydrochloric acid, mercury).


Class 9: Miscellaneous Hazardous Materials


Class or division



Includes articles and substances that pose a risk not covered by other classes, such as asbestos, carbon dioxide (dry ice), chemistry sets, first aid kits, internal combustion engines, vehicles that are gas-powered or use other flammable liquid, and polymer beads, among others.


Magnetized material, whose magnetic field can cause erroneous readings in the plane's instruments.


Marking and labeling

The sender is responsible for marking and labeling of their packages, in which risks and the proper way to handle the shipment should be noted.
It is essential that shipments are identified by the common names of dangerous goods, UN numbers, sender and consignee information, and include the correct labels for the dangerous goods being transported.


The shipper or his agent is responsible for completing and signing the Declaration for Dangerous Goods, a standard form that can be downloaded here.

Before accepting a shipment containing dangerous goods, LAN CARGO will complete a checklist to confirm that the shipment is properly prepared for transport.
