Electronic Cigarettes and Vaping Devices

Carry On Bags: 
Checked Bags: 

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 final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
