Can You Take Nicotine Pouches on a Plane

Nicotine Pouches are proving a popular choice for people to get their Nicotine fix as they feature several benefits that are not seen by any other nicotine based products such as combustible tobacco products and E-Cigarettes.

One of the primary benefits of using Nicotine Pouches is that they do not emit any smoke or vapour like what the above mentioned does, meaning you can use Nicotine Pouches in places you aren’t able to smoke or vape, ,such as pubs, clubs, and on public transport, most notably on planes meaning if you have to fly for a long distance, you won’t be abstaining from Nicotine too long.

In this article, I’m going to explain the in’s and out’s of travelling abroad with Nicotine Pouches and the best practices for using them when on the go, and travelling, especially on planes.

Benefits of Using Nicotine Pouches

As mentioned, Nicotine Pouches have many benefits that you can enjoy from the minute you start using them.

• They are a completely smoke/vapour free alternative for Nicotine.
• They do not contain any form of tobacco whatsoever, like what Snus pouches do, therefore eliminates the risk of ingesting any carcinogens normally found in tobacco
• They are small and discreet in size and design, meaning that they will sit comfortably between your gum and lip and won’t make your lip bulge making them practically unnoticeable to people around you
• They come in a variety of flavours as well as Nicotine strengths also meaning you can get a nicotine strength suited to your needs and also pick a flavour which you enjoy.
• And with them being smoke/vapour free, you can use Nicotine Pouches anywhere you go and in places that do not allow smoking or vaping inside, meaning you can get your Nicotine fix without the need to disrupt whatever it is you’re doing by having to go outside like you would if you smoked or vaped.

And it’s the last point on that list of benefits that we are going to focus on for the subject of this article, and that’s being able to use a Nicotine Pouch in places where smoking/vaping is not permitted such as Airports and Planes, so can you take Nicotine Pouches through an airport and on a plane? Let’s find out…

Taking Your Nicotine Pouches On A Plane

Gone are the days in airports now where they have dedicated smoking rooms actually within the airports, well that’s the case in the UK at least. All UK Airports have designated smoking/vaping shelters located outside of the buildings and terminal entrances away from the main building. And once you pass through security checks, you aren’t allowed to leave the airport, meaning you will be facing a prolonged period of time without being able to smoke or vape and get your nicotine fix.

But there’s a solution to this, and it’s those little white pouches in discussion here that you can use anywhere you may be to ensure your nicotine cravings are meet, and an airport is no exception to this.

Can You Take Nicotine Pouches on a Plane onboard

When it comes to taking your Nicotine Pouches on a plane, there aren’t any restrictions in regards to Nicotine powder when going through security. Taking a look at the Gov.UK guidelines on what you can and cannot take through airport security and on to a plane, they do not consider Nicotine a “harmful or hazardous” chemical meaning it is not restricted to fly with.

Ensure that you have your Nicotine Pouches at hand at all times so that they can go through the security scanner checks, as this will stop you getting held up and make your transition through as seamless as possible, as well as for the airport security staff and all other passengers that may be waiting behind you to go through.

An important tip I’ll give you, is always check your destination country’s regulations on using Nicotine Pouches, as some countries have quite strict guidelines and regulations on the use of Nicotine Pouches, and the last thing you want to do is to get on the wrong side of their law as soon as you step foot in the country!

Best Practice For Using Nicotine Pouches On a Plane

It might seem pretty simple and straight forward using Nicotine Pouches on a plane, but I just wanted to give some best practice tips/advice when it comes to using them.

• Ensure you have enough Nicotine Pouches to last the duration of your travel and flight. If you’re heading off on a long haul flight, or if you’re expecting to be in the airport for a while, ensure that you have enough Nicotine Pouches to last you the duration of this time. The last thing you want is to be stuck mid air and craving for Nicotine and running out of Nicotine Pouches!
• Don’t overdo it on the Nicotine! It’s well known that Nicotine can help reduce stress and anxiety levels, both of which can be high in a person when flying, so the most obvious thing to do here would be keeping your Nicotine levels topped up to alleviate this, but you don’t want to overdo it and become “nic sick” Too much nicotine can lead to side effects such as nausea, headaches or dizziness all of which can also occur as an effect of flying so the last thing you want to do is add to it and make yourself ill!
• Make sure you dispose of your used Nicotine Pouches correctly. This is really the most important thing to do, mainly for hygienic reasons. Make sure you dispose of your Nicotine Pouches properly and don’t just discard them on the floor or down the side of your seat on the plane. Each can of Nicotine Pouches feature a compartment on the lid which is designed to put your used pouches in so make sure you utilise this when you’ve finished with your pouch. Or if you have been supplied with a specific bag for rubbish/waste on the plane, put your used pouches in there. It’s best for everyone involved!

I hope this article has cleared up any questions or queries that you may have had on taking nicotine pouches onto a plane with you. If you’re wanting to stock up before your holiday, be sure to check out and get your Nicotine Pouches delivered to your door the next working day!
