With Viva, Your safety will always be the most important factor. Because of that, we want to share what you need to know about why we cannot fly with certain items aboard.
You should know that we have adopted these policies from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Why should I avoid flying with certain items?

Pay attention! It is important that you understand that variations in atmospheric pressure and temperature can cause leaks that generate toxic fumes or even fires. For this reason, some articles are classified as dangerous and their transport in luggage is prohibited. Failure to comply with this rule exposes you to criminal or civil penalties. Working together we take better care of ourselves!
