Can you bring a vape on a plane in Australia?
If you're a vaper planning to travel by plane in Australia, you might be wondering about the rules and regulations regarding bringing your vape device along. You can bring a vape on a plane in Australia. However, there are some regulations to follow. When it comes to traveling on a plane with a vape in Australia, it's important to note that you should carry your vape device and accessories in your carry-on luggage. The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) prohibits e-cigarettes and vape devices from being placed in checked baggage due to safety concerns.
To comply with safety regulations, it is crucial to remove any batteries from your vape device before packing it for the flight. Carry the batteries separately in a protective case, preferably in your carry-on bag. This precaution is essential to prevent accidental activation and potential fire hazards.
It's always advisable to check with your specific airline before your flight. Different airlines may have their own additional requirements, so it's essential to stay informed to avoid any last-minute surprises.
