No changes with the IATA table 2.3.A. , the Alpride device, thanks to its standard cartridges, can be consider as an "Avalanche rescue backpack" and / or a "self inflating safety device", like life-vest, motorbike airbag or equestrian airbag. In both cases you can travel with your Alpride Airbag and cartridges (you need the approval of the operator), considering the Alpride airbag as a safety device.
IATA Table 2.3.A. - Avalanche rescue backpack:
IATA Table 2.3.A. - Self inflating Safety Device:
Remarks: the four (4) cartridges up to 50 ml for other devices: other devices are not safety devices, it means small cartridges for cycling or airsoft guns, for example.
Just in case if you have some questions at the airport check-in, you can find, in attachment below, the MSDS and annexes for both cartridges
