Airline E-Cig Policies – What You Need to Know

So, here’s the thing. A while back, a bunch of new vaping enthusiasts started to come out of lockdown – the lockdown vapers are a valued part of our community; they’re not just a spur-of-the-moment crowd! However, for many of these vapers, the most challenging part of life was working out what they could and couldn’t do with their brand-new vape devices.

 Don’t worry; we’re here to help. What we thought we would do is take a look at some of the major airlines and review their specific policies for flying with vapes. Hopefully, you can use this info to enjoy a nice, relaxing flight without having to argue with airport security!

 These policies are all correct as of the last year.

British Airways

British Airways operate according to reasonable rules. You can take your e-cig with you in your carry-on luggage, but you need to put your e-liquids in a clear bag, and you can only have 100ml per bottle.

You can take up to 15 batteries with you across your entire baggage – but they have to be installed in a device. If you want to bring loose lithium-ion batteries, they’re relegated to hand luggage.

Eastern Airways 

Your electronic cigarettes can be brought on board your flight, but you must keep them on your person – they can not be stored in luggage. You are also not allowed to have any refills with you. Generally, you’re not allowed to take a lot of e-liquid with you – you’ll need to buy some when you land!


With EasyJet, you’re allowed to take e-cigs on the flight with you. You can also have up to two spare batteries in your carry-on luggage, but you can’t put them in the hold. If you want to bring any vape juice or refill, it has to be in a clear plastic bag.


Flying with Emirates means that all loose and spare batteries must be packed in your carry-on luggage only. There can be a maximum of 20 batteries in your total baggage. Your devices need to be switched off or prevented from being activated. If you want to bring e-liquids, then you’ll need to pack them within your liquid allowance and a sealed bag.

Virgin Atlantic Airways 

Finally, we’ll look at Virgin Atlantic Airways. The basic rules here are simple. You can pack your batteries in the hand luggage. Your vape liquids can be brought along in your hand luggage, but they can’t be more than 100ml per bottle. As usual, they need to be in a clear bag.

Final Thoughts

So, when it comes to your experiences, you’ll want to explore the airway you’re flying with to know what to do with your vape devices. However, if you follow the rules, you’ll enjoy a nice flight with minimal airport security input.
