If you are a vaper with high mobility and a lot of trips to other countries, you will be asking yourself this question: Can you bring vape on an airplane?
Well, the answer to that is yes. You can bring vape on the airplane. As long as you know the basic rules and follow the procedure, you won’t find any trouble in bringing vape on an airplane.
Keep in mind that bringing is allowed but vaping on a plane is strictly forbidden. Refrain yourself from vaping on an airplane unless you want to the plane security to come after you.
In this article, we refer specifically to Transportation Security Administration or TSA. Although some countries might have different rules of airplane security, the restriction is more or less the same.
The FAA prohibits these devices in checked bags. Battery-powered E-cigarettes, vaporizers, vape pens, atomizers, and electronic nicotine delivery systems may only be carried in the aircraft cabin (in carry-on baggage or on your person).
Check with your airline for additional restrictions. Remove all electronic cigarette and vaping devices from carry-on bags if checked at the gate or planeside.
The reason why vape is prohibited on checked luggage is because vape consists of lithium battery.
That is the culprit of explosion and fires in the cargo hold, that is why at current time you certainly cannot pack your vape in checked baggage and you must carry it with you to the cabin.
If you forget, you will find yourself losing your vape and your suitcase being wrecked by security. So, never put your vape in your checked luggage.
