View Full Version : flying with fuel canisters?

09-02-2012, 06:59 PM
Started packing for my colorado flight, not sure what to do with my jetboil fuel canisters. Can I leave them in my checked luggage? Should they be in my bow case? Really don't have room in there... Can I take them at all? I looked at the airline website, couldn't find anything specific. If anybody has any info I would greatly appreciate it.

I don't think you can take any type of fuel on an airline. I would definitely call the airline to give you peace of mind. I know a couple of guys who got in some serious trouble when they sent their coleman stove on the airplane. They didn't even have fuel canisters. There was only fuel residue in the stove.

Its a definite no go on fuel on the plane. You will have to pick up some where it is your going to fly into.

I asked the same question. The answer is no gas on the plane. Check out this site http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm. You can either mail them to your hotel or a post office or just by them when u get there. Most sporting goods stores carry them out there.
