Electronic smoking devices like vapes are ubiquitous these days. You can find people at every corner puffing away, leaving you with the scent of dessert. Vapes are often used as alternatives to cigarettes, so people need to carry them when traveling. But can you carry a vape on a plane?
Electronic smoking devices like vapes are allowed on a plane as long as any batteries are removed, and care is taken to prevent device activation. Vapes should only be carried in hand luggage. Any vape juices and liquids should not exceed the 3.4oz/100ml requirements.
Is A Vape Allowed In Carry-On Luggage?
Passengers carrying vapes and other electronic smoking devices can carry them on the plane. The vape should be packed in hand luggage, not checked baggage. Vapes are only allowed on planes if you take them in your carry-on or purse.
Can You Take Vape Juice On A Flight?
You will most likely need to carry vape juice/liquid if you have a vape. Passengers can carry vape juice in hand luggage or checked baggage. If the vape liquid is packed in checked luggage, there is no restriction on size and quantity.
If the vape juice is packed in a carry-on, purse, or backpack that will remain with you on the flight, it must follow the TSA guidelines for liquid. The vape juice cannot exceed 3.4 oz or 100 ml to pass through airport security control.
You can carry more than a bottle of vape liquid, but each bottle should equal or be less than the TSA required amounts. If it exceeds 3.4 oz or 100 ml, airport security will confiscate it at the checkpoints.
How Should You Pack A Vape For A Flight?
Carrying a vape in your carry-on is allowed; however, how you pack the device is crucial. A vape can easily be activated if it is not switched off or packed carelessly, creating issues and a fire safety hazard.
Always ensure your vape is switched off if it has a button that can do that (some vapes do not). If there are any removable batteries in the vape, they should be removed and packed separately. Never leave the batteries in the device.
Pack the vape between other items (preferably soft things like clothing) so that it does not get damaged with movement or press against something hard that could activate it. If any parts of the device can be disassembled, it is best to take them apart before packing.
Can You Carry Disposable Vapes On A Plane?
Disposable vapes have become the new trendy smoking devices. People like and prefer them for several reasons. Everywhere you look, someone is smoking a disposable vape.
The TSA allows disposable vapes on the plane; however, they should also be packed only in your carry-on bag. Disposable vapes require you to take a puff for them to smoke, so they are unlikely to get activated and are a better option for traveling on a flight.
Care should still be taken when carrying disposable vapes, and you will still need to pack them safely. Airport security will not have a problem with you passing through checkpoints with a disposable vape in your carry-on or purse.
Can You Smoke A Vape In The Plane?
Smoking anything is strictly prohibited on any plane on all airlines. You cannot smoke in the airport either. Smoking is not allowed, whether it is a cigarette, e-cigarette, vape, or any other device, and you will be knocked with a hefty fine if you are found smoking.
Vapes are allowed on the plane in your carry-on, but that is not because you can smoke them. It is because it is safer to carry it that way than in checked baggage. It would be best never to try smoking on a plane, not even in the lavatory.
If you are a chain smoker or have a tobacco or nicotine addiction, try carrying nicotine gum or lozenges to keep you going through the flight. Nicotine gum is also allowed, which makes it easier for many people who need to rely on it till they can smoke again.
Can You Take A E-Cigarette On The Plane?
E-cigarettes are permitted on planes, but like vapes, all electronic smoking devices are only allowed in carry-on bags, not checked luggage. The TSA does not restrict the number or size of electronic smoking devices but advises passengers to carry them cautiously.
Unless you carry a questionable number of electronic smoking devices that might cause security to wonder if you are taking the devices to sell at your destination, they will not stop or question you.
Can You Take Tobacco Vape Liquid On A Plane?
Tobacco flavor vape liquid is allowed in checked luggage and carry-on bags. The TSA permits most tobacco products, including chewing tobacco, cigars, etc.
If you pack the tobacco vape juice in your carry-on luggage, remember that it needs to follow the TSA rule and not exceed the maximum amount of 3.4 oz or 100 ml.
Can You Carry CBD Vape Oil On A Plane?
The regulations of carrying CBD differ according to different airlines, countries, and even states within the US. The legality of traveling with CBD oil, or any CBD product, can change based on your location.
It is always best to precheck with your specific airline, departing, and landing destinations for CBD vape oil restrictions. Many states in the US allow hemp-based CBD because it has less than 0.3% THC. Others will allow it only if the oil is devoid of THC.
The TSA rules of CBD vape oil will still apply for carry-on bags – it should be equal to or less than 3.4 oz or 100 ml. Anything above that will be confiscated, even if the CBD vape oil is allowed.
Sometimes airport security will stop you if you have regular vape liquid to check if there is any CBD in the products. Most countries or states where CBD is illegal or traveling with it is still prohibited will do that.
Always check your airline and country/city restrictions before traveling with vapes and vape juice, including tobacco and CBD oil. You could always send a tweet to TSA with your questions, and they will respond with helpful answers to your queries.
