With spring break swinging into action and people looking to thaw out some place warm, Delta wants to remind customers to pack smart so that airport security restrictions don’t slow down the fun.
Here are five tips to get travelers to spring break and back on time:
Hoverboards don’t fly
Delta will not accept the transport of balance gliders, hoverboards and self-balancing boards of any type which use lithium or lithium-ion batteries on board its aircraft. These items are prohibited as both carry-on and checked baggage.
E-Cigarettes as carry-ons only
There aren’t any TSA rules regarding vaping, but battery-powered, portable, electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes, etc.) are strictly prohibited in checked baggage, where they can become overheated. These devices are only allowed in carry-on baggage. Recharging of the devices and/or the batteries on board the aircraft is not permitted and Delta prohibits the use of smokeless cigarettes and all tobacco products on all Delta flights.
Alcohol needs to measure up
Up to 5 liters of alcohol per person purchased after going through the security checkpoint in their original unopened retail packaging are allowed on board as checked or carry-on baggage, as long as it does not exceed 140 proof. If the alcohol is purchased before going through the security checkpoint, our security rules apply for carry-on or checked baggage.
Lighters can’t be checked
Fueled lighters are prohibited in checked baggage. Only one lighter when carried on one’s person or in carry-on baggage only is allowed.
Bug spray and aerosol containers can’t hold more than 16oz
Personal care items, such as cologne, hairspray and insect repellant, are allowed in checked baggage without prior approval, as long as they contain less than 16 ounces of fluid each and less than 70 ounces total. Personal care items in smaller quantities, which comply with TSA rules, may also be placed in carry-on baggage.
