PEOPLE carrying cigarettes or vapes may want to check the rules of the airline they're using before attempting to bring them on the plane.
This is because there are different rules and regulations on the subject between particular airline companies. This is what we know.
Can you take e-cigs in your hand luggage?
Before travelling, it'd be wise to check each airline's restrictions when it comes to e-cigs.
The majority of airlines do allow you to have your e-cig in a carry-on- however, passengers could be banned from flying if they vape onboard.
The use of vapes while flying is strictly prohibited in most airlines.
Easyjet allows you to carry e-cigarettes and a maximum of two spare batteries in your cabin bag.

Travellers who return to the UK must be aware they can only bring a specific amount of cigarettes without having to pay tax.
If they go over their allowance they will have to declare the goods and pay tax and duty.
According to the Government guidelines, the tobacco allowance is:
- 200 cigarettes
- 100 cigarillos

- 200 sticks of tobacco for electronic heated tobacco devices
The allowance can also be split- for example, you can carry 100 cigarettes and 25 cigars.
