Can you bring matches on a plane? The answer may surprise you. There are different rules for bringing matches on a plane depending on whether they are checked or carried on. In this blog post, we will explore the rules for bringing matches in your luggage.
What are the rules on bringing matches on a plane?
If you are planning to bring matches with you on your next flight, there are a few things you should know. Matches are considered hazardous materials and are subject to the same restrictions as other hazardous materials.
Can you have matches in your carry-on?
Technically no. However, you can carry one book of matches on the plane with you. You must keep them on your person and they cannot be “spark anywhere” matches. You will also need to declare the matches to the TSA at the security checkpoint.
Can you have matches in your checked bag?
No. It is against regulations to pack matches in your checked bag. If you are caught with matches in your checked bag, the TSA will most likely confiscate them.
So, can you bring matches on a plane? The answer is yes, but there are some restrictions. Be sure to keep them on your person and declare them to the TSA at the security checkpoint. Don’t try to sneak them into your checked bag, as the TSA will most likely catch you and confiscate them.
