One of the biggest advantages of e-cigs is their accessibility. You can enjoy them in most places which ban cigarettes, such as offices, restaurants and stores. While vaping is allowed almost everywhere, the sky’s the limit for e-cig users, literally.
All U.S. airlines have now banned the use of e-cigs on planes, so vaping mid-air is nearly impossible. But, there is still some important information you should know before traveling with your e-cig. That’s why we at KRAVE® have put together a list of tips and facts to keep in mind before bringing your vape on a plane.
Traveling With Your E-cig
Currently, TSA has no restrictions on bringing e-cigs through the security check points, which is great for vape users! You can bring all your vaping equipment in your carry-on with no worries.
Still, be sure to place your electronic cigarette and its charger with your other electronics. While it shouldn’t be a problem, by having everything ready you will save you from any potential hold ups in the security line. Also, if you use any e-juice for your vaporizers, remember you can only bring three ounces. Also, be sure it is stored in a clear plastic bag along with your other liquids.
You Can Vape in the Airport… Sometimes
Airports are currently divided on letting passengers vape in the terminals. State and local laws govern the use of e-cigs indoors, including in airports. This means that airports are largely left to create their own protocols when it comes to vaping indoors. Currently, these major airports allow e-cig use:
- Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
- Dulles International Airport
- Charlotte Douglas International Airport
- Tampa International Airport
- Miami International Airport
- Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport
- Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
- McCarran International Airport
- LaGuardia Airport (In designated terminals only)
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (In designated terminals only)
Don’t Vape on the Plane
While it might seem tempting to discreetly vape on your flight, resist the urge! There is no federal ban from using e-cigs on planes, however all U.S. airlines prohibit their use, in flight and during taxi. Vaping will land you either with a hefty fine, or get you kicked off the flight (if you have yet to take off, obviously). The only way to vape mid-flight is if you charter a private jet. However, it’s safe to say this isn’t a viable option for most of us…
The accessibility of e-cigs makes them any travelers best friend, just save it for your destination. Remember to prepare for your flight, and know the rules of vaping on a plane. Wherever your voyage takes you, be sure to enjoy it with a KRAVE® e-cig. Check out our full list of travel friendly e-cigs here.
