Can I Take My Pepper Spray on an Airplane?

We know!  You’re looking forward to that relaxing beach vacation or exploring a new city, but it’s important to stay aware and be prepared to protect yourself if harm comes your way. If you (or someone you love) is planning to fly to a vacation destination and TRAVEL SAFETY is important to you, you’ve probably wondered “Can you bring pepper spray on an airplane?” Let's break it down so you know everything you need to about taking your pepper spray on an airplane.

Well, the first answer is no, you cannot bring pepper spray into an airplane cabin in a carry-on bag or personal item for obvious reasons.  But, you most likely will be able to bring it in your checked baggage, depending on the size of the pepper spray and the airline you’re flying.

You can pack pepper spray in a checked bag if it abides by TSA regulations. The TSA allows one 4-ounce container of pepper spray in your checked bag and the formula cannot contain more than 2 percent by mass of tear gas. The pepper spray must also have a safety mechanism to prevent accidental discharge, (which the Daisy-Safe 5-in-1 Smart Pepper Spray does.)

However, it is also a good idea to check the rules of your airline as some, like United, JetBlue, and Southwest prohibit checking pepper spray in baggage regardless of these TSA requirements.

You may also check the laws in the location you’re traveling to. While pepper spray is legal in all 50 states, some have specific regulations and restrictions. Make sure you check the local laws, whether you’re traveling nationally or internationally.

And if you would rather not deal with any different pepper spray restrictions as you plan your trip, a personal alarm like the Daisy-Safe Smart Personal Alarm Emergency Button is a great alternative that is legal to carry everywhere, including in airplane cabins and carry-on bags, so you can feel safer wherever your travels may take you.

The good news? Daisy-Safe 5-in-1 Smart Pepper Spray is checked bag approved, and for added security, you can pack your pepper spray in the portable lockbox in the Daisy-Safe 5 Way Ultimate Safety Bundle. Now you're ready to be safe and protected  wherever your travels take you! Bon Voyage!
