    Watching period dramas of elegant people touring the world, jetting off to exotic destinations in seats you could comfortably sit down with space left over seems like over a century ago. But it was in 1986 when the curtain closed on smoking on planes in Australia where you could once light up and hot-box the area with cigarette-wielding travellers. How times have changed — and who even smokes these days when you can vape?

    While what you are puffing on has changed — for the better — governmental attitudes have not, leaving us to question where you can take a hit and relax before and after a flight — let alone whether you can bring your vapes on a plane. Our guide below will give you the rundown on whether you can take a vape on a plane, where you can blow clouds and what happens if you put a vape in checked luggage. Read on!

    Can you bring vapes on a plane in Australia?

    Vaping is unfortunately treated the same as cigarettes in Australia and across the globe, even worse in some countries. While you can bring your vape on a plane, they must be carried in with you or in your carry-on luggage. But that doesn’t mean you can puff away on domestic and international flights; vaping and smoking are strictly prohibited in all areas of the aircraft. While reports on whether an aircraft’s smoke sensors can detect vapour are unknown, the sweet, delicious smell may blow your cover — risking your travels, a hefty fine and possible arrest are enough not to take the chance.

    While taking vapes on a plane isn’t banned by Australian law, airlines can maintain their own policy, so it is always best to confirm prior to leaving your home. To Australian authorities, airlines and airports, all e-cigarettes are treated the same, so if you’ve been asking, “can you take disposable vapes on an aeroplane in Australia?” the answer is yes, you can — but again, they can’t be used indoors or during the flight. Airlines may stop you from bringing your vape in any capacity if your destination doesn’t allow them. Below is a list of nations that have a full or partial ban on electronic cigarettes:

    • Argentina
    • Brazil
    • Brunei
    • Cambodia
    • Egypt
    • Hong Kong
    • India
    • Indonesia
    • Iran
    • Japan
    • Jordan
    • Malaysia
    • Qatar
    • Singapore
    • Taiwan
    • Thailand
    • Vietnam

    What happens if you put a vape in checked luggage?

    While you can store your vape e-liquids in your checked luggage, generally, nothing will happen if you take your vape on a plane in your checked baggage. It’s predominantly a safety precaution if the battery short circuits and ignites a fire. In the rare case this occurs, the vape can be more easily identified, accessed and extinguished.

    Where can you vape at airports in Australia?

    Australian airports have designated smoking areas outside the terminal, often hidden out of sight to prevent vapour and smoke from affecting other travellers. There are no smoking rooms inside the terminal, so should you have a craving, you’ll need to exit the airport, re-enter and submit to security checks all over again.
