A Comprehensive Guide to Vaping on Planes and in Airports

Traveling with your Cue Vapor kit
When it comes to flights and international borders, traveling isn't always straightforward. As a Cue Vapor user, you may have questions about how vapes and planes interact. Can you take your Cue Vapor on a plane? Where should you store it? Can you bring your pod with you? We've got you covered with the do's and don'ts of traveling with vapes by plane.

Taking your Cue Vapor on a plane
Yes, you can bring your Cue Vapor on a plane. Keep your device on your person or store it in your cabin luggage. Remember, airlines prohibit vapes in checked-in luggage to avoid delays.

Bringing e-liquid/Pods on a plane
You can bring e-liquid on a plane, but it must comply with the same restrictions as other liquids. Store it in a clear plastic bag. You can bring up to one liter or up to 200 ePod pods per person. Consider the quantity of e-liquid alongside other liquids like toiletries and medicines.

Vaping on a plane and in airports
Vaping on a plane is strictly banned by all airlines. Never attempt to do so, as it carries legal consequences. Wait until you reach your destination airport and find designated areas for vaping.

Using a vape in the airport
Vaping is not allowed inside UK airports. However, some airports provide designated smoking and vaping areas, typically located at the front of the terminal building. A few also have smoking areas airside after security.

Airlines' policies on vaping Different airlines have varying rules regarding vapes on flights. Here are some policies for UK airlines:

  • EasyJet: Carry vape devices and a maximum of two spare batteries in your cabin bag. Pack refills and e-liquids with other liquids in a clear plastic bag.
  • Jet2: Carry vape batteries in hand luggage (up to 20 spare batteries and two devices per passenger). Refills and liquids in hand luggage must not exceed 100ml per bottle.
  • TUI Airways: Pack e-liquids or refills in hand luggage within the liquid allowance. Larger quantities or bigger bottles can be checked in. Do not charge vape devices on the plane.
  • British Airways: Place vapes in your hand baggage, protected to prevent accidental activation. Follow the security requirements for liquids. You can bring up to 15 battery-operated devices, including vapes.
  • Emirates: Carry spare batteries in carry-on baggage. Refills and e-liquids must be packed within the liquid allowance in a sealed, clear plastic bag.
  • Virgin Atlantic: Protect vape batteries to prevent accidental activation. Batteries must be carried in carry-on baggage. E-liquids can be brought in hand luggage, not exceeding 100ml per bottle.

Always check with your airline for their specific regulations, as they change often.

International vaping laws and etiquette
Vaping laws and attitudes vary globally. Some countries have different regulations and may ban the sale and use of vapes. Research the legal situation and social attitudes towards vaping in the countries you will be traveling through.

Taking care of your vape abroad
To ensure your Cue Vapor works properly while traveling, take good care of it. Avoid exposing your vape to intense sun or high temperatures, and protect pods from heat, UV light, and open air. Store your pods in a cool, dark place, such as a cupboard.

Safe travels with your Cue Vapor!
