Vaping devices like e-cigarettes, vape pens mods and pods must travel with you on airplanes, in carry-on luggage or in your pockets. That also applies to lithium batteries. E-liquid or extra pods can be packed in either carry-on or checked bags
The advice in this article applies in most places around the world, although we specifically reference New Zealand regulations. Since there may be minor variations in how vape rules are applied by different airlines, it’s best to check the specific airline rules before you fly. If you’re traveling to an unfamiliar country, you should also check the local vaping laws before you depart. Vaping is banned in some countries—in which case flying with a vape pen might be the least of your worries!
Air travel is pretty straightforward for vapers. You can take a vape on a plane—and extra batteries, and e-liquid. You won’t have any problems as long as you follow some basic rules and know the procedures.
Because of concerns over fires in the cargo hold, all electronic devices and lithium vape batteries must be carried onto the plane. You can’t pack them in checked baggage. This is a worldwide rule, with no exceptions. If you forget and your luggage is x-rayed by the baggage handlers, you’re liable to lose your devices and batteries, and find your suitcase roughed up. Or they might leave your luggage at the departure airport. So take your vape devices aboard in your cabin luggage (or in a pocket).
More tips for flying with vape devices:
All liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes carried onto the plane must be in 100 mL (or smaller) bottles. That includes toothpaste, shampoo, hair gel, lip balm, deodorant—and e-juice too.
If you’re bringing more bottled e-juice and you need to put it in your checked luggage, double bag it to avoid arriving for your week-long vacation with a suitcase full of wet vanilla custard-smelling clothes! Pods and cartridges are also allowed in checked luggage.
