Are candles allowed in planes? Can I take my candle in a carry-on-luggage?

Well, it depends on the candle!

Some candles are counted as a liquid, so do NOT try to take them in your luggage.

All hazardous materials are prohibited.

Wax candles may be put in carry-on luggage, but their gel-like counterparts need to be checked.

Can I take a wax candle on a plane in my hand luggage?

Yes, you can.

Make sure you declare them though if needed (if your travelling internationally and the customs form asks if you have any wax items).

If you have matches that go with them, they will not be allowed in the cabin of the aircraft.

So, for candles in planes…

To sum up!!

For solid candles:
Carry On Bags: Yes
Checked Bags: Yes

For gel/liquid candles:
Carry On Bags: No
Checked Bags: Yes
