Prohibited or Restricted Items

Tobacco, E-Cigarettes or Marijuana

Review the following guidelines to make sure you’re prepared to travel with these prohibited or restricted items.


Battery-powered electronic smoking devices, such as “e-cigarettes, e-cigs, e-cigars, e-pipes, e-hookahs, personal vaporizers, electronic nicotine delivery systems,” can be brought as carry-on items only. They may be carried by passengers or crew members and are for personal use only. Using or recharging the device while on board the aircraft is not permitted.

We recommend (1) traveling with them in a protected carry-case to prevent damage and/or unintentional activation and (2) researching the customs laws of other countries regarding the use of e-cigarettes, as certain countries may restrict and/or completely ban the import, export, or use of electronic cigarettes.

Delta is not responsible for items confiscated by local authorities.


Although Delta Air Lines is aware of various state laws that allow recreational or medical marijuana possession, the TSA has stated that possession of marijuana, even medical marijuana, is illegal under federal law and that it will refer passengers traveling with marijuana to law enforcement authorities. Accordingly, Delta Air Lines does not allow passengers to transport marijuana on our flights.
