  • Airline says battery may overheat and pose fire safety risk
  • Passengers requested to verify with Apple whether their devices are affected by the recall


SriLankan Airlines yesterday said it is not allowing older generation 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro units on their planes over fire safety risk. 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.


“As a safety measure passengers are requested to verify with Apple whether their devices are affected by the recall.


“They will be requested upon check-in to produce such verifications or proof that the battery has been replaced.


“In the absence of such verification, their devices will not be allowed in as checked- in or carry-on luggage.


“In order to verify your device, please follow the link Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro Battery Recall Programme.
“For more information, please contact SriLankan Airlines 24 Hour Contact Center on +94117771979,” a SriLankan Airlines statement said.
