The US government represented by the Ministry of transportation and the Federal aviation administration issued a temporary order which prohibits the transport of lithium-ion batteries and cells as cargo.
This will apply only to passenger Airliners. It should be noted that this restriction does not apply to passengers.
As for companies, they will no longer be able to use passenger planes for the delivery of lithium-ion batteries. May have to wait for special cargo flights.
