If you're traveling with a vape in your carry-on bag, you may be in for some trouble. Airlines have strict rules about the devices, and they can be confiscated and charged with a felony if they're not properly registered and packaged. Here's everything you need to know about vaping on planes.
Yes, you can bring a vape on a plane under 21
You can bring a vape on a plane under 21 as long as it is in your carry-on and you are not using it while aboard the plane. Keep in mind that you cannot use it in any of the airport terminals or while in flight.
The penalties for bringing a vape on a plane
Vaping is not allowed on airplanes, and there are serious penalties for those who try to bring a vape into the cabin.
Under federal law, vaping is classified as an act of smoking. This means that it is illegal to smoke any type of tobacco product in the air transportation section of an airport. This includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and e-cigarettes. Anyone caught violating this law can face a fine of up to $25,000 and five years in prison.
Additionally, airlines can refuse to transport passengers if they suspect them of carrying any tobacco products. This includes vape devices, even if they are not being used. If an airline does decide to transport someone with a vape device, they may be subject to additional restrictions such as being forced to sit in the back of the airplane or being refused boarding altogether.
Even if you do not intend to use your vape while on a plane, it is still illegal to carry it aboard. This includes both vape devices and any liquid or cartridge that contains nicotine. Penalties for violating this law can be even more severe than those for smoking tobacco products in the air transportation section of an airport.
Why bring a vape on a plane?
1. Vapes are legal in some states but not all. 2. Vapes are not safe and can be dangerous if not used correctly. 3. Bringing a vape on a plane is not recommended because of the risk of fire and TSA confiscation.
The best time of day to bring a vape on a plane
When it comes to travelling with vape gear, the best time of day to do so depends on the airline you're flying with.
Some airlines, like Hawaiian Airlines, allow you to bring e-cigarettes and vaping devices in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. This means that you can take your vape with you on your flight, even if you're not allowed to smoke tobacco products on the plane.
Other airlines, like American Airlines, have stricter limits on what you're allowed to bring with you on a plane. They generally don't allow any type of tobacco product, including vape gear. If you're flying with American Airlines, it's best to check their website or call ahead to make sure they will be allowing your vape device.
As of now, it is unclear whether or not you can bring a vape on a plane under the age of 21. Some airlines have stated that they will allow vaping devices in carry-on bags, while others have said that they are not allowed. If you are travelling with a vape, it is important to check with your airline beforehand to find out their specific policy.
