Prohibited Shipping Items and Restricted Carry-On Items

*Cigarette lighters are prohibited on all outbound flights from the USA as of April 14th, 2005
As of Thursday April 14th, 2005, it is prohibited to carry cigarette lighters into the departure lobby or on board any aircraft taking off from the United States of America (including Hawaii, Guam, and Saipan). It is also not possible to put cigarette lighters inside your checked-in baggage. If you break these rules, you will be asked to dispose of the cigarette lighter, but you may also face criminal charges or a civil lawsuit.
In line with this development many airlines are prohibiting cigarette lighters on inbound flights to the United States as well. All passengers flying to and from the United States after April 14th should bear this in mind and take special care not to take cigarette lighters on board with them.
All US airlines prohibit cigarette lighters on board, regardless of the destination. Any inquiries concerning this should be directed to your airline.
