Regardless, carrying e-cigarettes on a plane can be a little confusing, especially if you’re not familiar with the rules and regulations regarding e-cigarette for air travel.
However, in this article, we will provide you with all the information you need to take your e-cigarette on a plane so that you can have a stress-free and enjoyable trip. If you’re ready to learn more, let’s dive in.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that the following information applies only to those of legal age (18-21 years) to purchase and use e-cigarettes. If you are not of legal age, please do not proceed.
Can e-cigarettes be brought on board a plane?
Yes, you can. However, e-cigarettes, e-cigarettes and similar devices may only be carried in carry-on baggage and may not be carried in checked baggage. This is because vaping devices contain batteries, which poses a fire risk.
The TSA requires that all lithium batteries used in electronic devices, including e-cigarettes and e-cigarettes, be carried in carry-on luggage. E-cigarette devices must be turned off and batteries must be removed from the device and placed in a separate box.
Note: Each lithium-ion/lithium metal battery must have a Watt-hour rating/lithium content of 100 Watt-hours/2 grams or less.
You can carry a reasonable amount of e-liquid in your carry-on luggage. The TSA requires that all liquids passing through security must be 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item.
E-liquid containers must be placed in clear, quart-sized, resealable plastic bags. Each passenger is allowed only one piece of luggage. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the airline before traveling. If you want to bring more than 100ml of e-liquid, please check it in.
Carrying and using e-cigarettes/e-cigarettes on board a plane
Vaping is prohibited on any flight operated by any airline. This means passengers cannot use vaping devices on board the aircraft, in the cabin or in the bathroom. Some airlines treat e-cigarettes similarly to smoking.
It’s also a good idea to check the vaping legislation in the country you’re visiting, as they may differ depending on where you go. For example, in the UK, e-cigarettes and e-liquids are allowed on board aircraft, but the use of these devices is not.
In Thailand, however, e-cigarettes have been banned since 2014. Possession of vaping devices may result in penalties (up to 30,000 baht) or even imprisonment (up to 10 years).
When packing your vaping device into your carry-on luggage, safety and security are crucial. You don’t want your device to get destroyed or cause harm to others throughout your trip.
Make sure to use leak-proof bottles and clear plastic bags. To avoid confusion with security personnel, store disposable e-cigarettes in their original packaging when traveling.

Similar to bringing any liquid or aerosol on a plane, pack your e-cigarette juice and refills in clear, resealable plastic bags and keep them in your carry-on luggage. This will make it easier for security personnel to inspect your belongings at the checkpoint.
Make sure your vape juice and supplements are properly labeled. Labels should include the product name, ingredients, and the manufacturer’s name and address.
If you are carrying more than 100ml of e-liquid and e-liquid, you may need to check it in with your luggage. However, lithium-ion batteries, which are common in vaping devices, are not allowed in checked baggage.
Please be aware of any restrictions on e-cigarettes in the country you are traveling to. Some countries have strict regulations on the use and possession of vaping devices. Knowing these rules before traveling can save you a lot of trouble.
What about CBD oil and THC vapes?
Laws regarding CBD oil, THC vapes, and marijuana vary greatly from country to country, and even within different states or regions within a country. Generally speaking, it is illegal to carry THC e-cigarettes on board a plane, even if they are legal in the country of departure and/or destination.
That’s because airports and aircraft are subject to federal laws prohibiting the possession and transportation of marijuana and THC products. In many cases, transporting these substances across borders is illegal. Attempting to do so may result in serious legal consequences.
In the United States, the TSA allows passengers to bring on board hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% THC. In the UK, you can bring CBD oil in your hand luggage, provided it’s limited to 100ml (but CBD buds are not allowed).
Marijuana and its products, including THC vapes, remain illegal at the federal level and are not allowed on airplanes. If you are unsure about the laws and regulations regarding these substances, it is best to err on the side of caution and avoid taking them on board a plane.
Alternative nicotine products for travel
If you want to avoid bringing e-cigarettes or traditional tobacco products with you when traveling, here are some alternative nicotine products to consider:
Nicotine Gum: Nicotine gum is a popular option for travelers who want to satisfy their nicotine cravings in a discreet, convenient way. It comes in a variety of flavors and strengths (2 mg or 4 mg).
Nicotine patches: Nicotine patches are another option for travelers. They are easy to use and provide a steady dose of nicotine throughout the day.
Nicotine Lozenges: Nicotine lozenges are small tablets that slowly dissolve in the mouth. They’re a great option for people who don’t like chewing gum.
Nicotine inhalers: Nicotine inhalers deliver nicotine in vapor form, similar to e-cigarettes. They are a good choice for those who prefer a more physical delivery of nicotine.
It’s important to note that these products should be used as directed, and you should consult your doctor before starting any new nicotine replacement therapy.
In addition, different countries may have different regulations regarding the use and availability of these products. Therefore, it is important to research your destination’s rules and regulations before traveling.
