Can You Take Vapes on Planes in Canada?

July 18, 2023

Travelling with a vape device in Canada can be confusing and stressful, and it can be hard to know what you can and cannot bring onboard an airplane. 

In this article, we answer this burning question and provide the information you need to know before boarding your next flight with a packed vape device.

Can You Put a Vape in Your Carry-On in Canada?

According to the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA), vaping products are allowed in carry-on baggage if they don’t exceed 100 ml/3.4 oz. You also won't need to remove your vape from its case or any bag where you may have placed it during screening. 

If you're curious about any other potential restrictions when travelling with a vape on a plane in Canada, you can always check with your air carrier for more information.

Can You Put a Vape in Your Checked Luggage in Canada?

While you may still want to check with your air carrier to determine whether you can bring a vape in your checked luggage when flying on a plane in Canada, they’re generally not allowed in the checked baggage compartment. 

Vapes aren’t typically allowed in the checked baggage compartment because there are risks involved in transporting these e-cigarettes in checked baggage on an aircraft. Since checked bags aren’t accessible from the plane's passenger area, if anything were to happen, it could put everyone on the aircraft at risk.

These precautions are in place because several incidents have been reported involving overheating a vape by accidentally activating the device's heating element, resulting in fires within checked bags.

Because of this, Transport Canada requires e-cigarettes to be carried on the plane in the cabin where any accidents involving the vape or its battery can be treated immediately if necessary.

Other Restrictions and Rules

Another restriction when flying on a plane with a vape in Canada is that you may not charge your e-cigarette battery while on the aircraft to avoid unintentionally activating the battery's heating element onboard. 

You should also understand that any spare vape batteries should be carried on as well, with spares individually protected to prevent any short circuits. Two good ways include keeping the device in its original packaging, placing each battery in its protective pouch, or taping over the exposed battery terminals.

Tips for Traveling With a Vape & Storing E-Liquid Correctly

Have you found your ideal vape collection and want to bring your device with you on your next flight? Use the tips we've provided below to ensure a safe trip so you can enjoy your vape once you reach your final destination.

  • Safe Storage: It’s important to remember that the liquid inside the e-cigarette is flammable and can be hazardous if it gets onto or near electrical components. Ensure that you store your vaping device safely in an area away from any sources of heat or sparks, and keep all e-liquid containers sealed.
  • Consider Liquid Restrictions: While you should be able to fly with your vape and e-liquid on a plane in Canada, you should be aware of the liquid restrictions. According to CATSA, all liquids, gels, and aerosols in your carry-on bag must be within containers of 100ml or less. Then, you must place them in a resealable, clear 1L bag you remove during security — don't bring any e-liquid in containers above that limit to ensure you can get them on the plane.
  • Declare All Items: It's also essential to declare all vaping items when going through the security checkpoint at the airport, even if they're stored in your carry-on baggage. While you shouldn't have to remove them from your bags during the security checkpoint, it's always a good idea to be forthright to avoid any confusion or issues.
  • Check Local Laws: Another thing to note when travelling with a vape in Canada is that it may not be legal to vape on public property or privately owned businesses, depending on the area you're travelling to. You can check out local laws and regulations online. And, if you're not sure, always ask politely before vaping somewhere.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Airlines Check for Vapes?

Airlines in Canada typically don’t check for vapes when you're flying on a plane and have them packed in your carry-on luggage. However, if you bring vaping items and place them in your checked bags, security may identify and remove them for safety reasons.

How Many Disposable Vapes Can I Bring on a Plane?

The number of disposable vapes you can bring on a plane in Canada will depend on how much liquid is inside. If they’re within the 100ml/3.4oz size restriction and can fit in a 1L bag, you can bring as many as you'd like.

Final Thoughts

Travelling with a vape can be tricky, but luckily, it's allowed if you abide by the rules and regulations — pack them safely and securely, ensure the liquid is within limits, and only bring them in your carry-on baggage. Always check with your air carrier before travelling to get more information on what you can and cannot bring onto the plane if you're unsure.
