No e-cigarettes in checked luggage
While I have no information on what Canada’s transportation agency will do on a long-term basis, in the United States, the Transportation Department has issued a ruling permanently banning transporting e-cigarettes in checked baggage. In November they had passed a temporary ban until after more intensive research could be completed. They have now concluded that e-cigarettes can catch fire during a flight, and in the interests of safety have banned them from luggage. In a statement, Transportation Secretary Anthony Fox said, “Fire hazards in flight are particularly dangerous. Banning e-cigarettes from checked bags is a prudent and important safety measure. However they still can be carried on board so long as they are not used in any manner during the flight.
