According to TSA regulations, you can bring nicotine pouches such as Zyn, tobacco-free gum, and lozenges on a plane in both your carry-on and checked bags.
In other words, if the product is smoke-free, you’re free to pack it in either your carry-on and checked bags.

Bringing Nicotine Pouches on International Flights
While different regulations sometimes apply when flying internationally, this doesn’t seem to be the case with nicotine pouches.
Keep in mind that nicotine pouches are restricted in some countries, such as in Norway and Canada, where you can’t buy them in general stores.
In other countries, it can be hard to find a shop that sells nicotine pouches, so make sure to stock up before you catch your flight.
Even if nicotine pouches are restricted in a country, you will usually be okay to bring some for personal use.
You Can Use Nicotine Pouches on the Plane
As nicotine pouches are smoke-free, and you do not need to spit when using them, you will likely be able to use them onboard the plane.
We say likely because airlines do not specifically state the use of nicotine pouches isn’t allowed, so in most instances you’ll probably be fine.
This is great news if you have a long flight coming up.
How to Pack Nicotine Pouches for Flying
When passing airport security, no special instructions are necessary.
So, you can keep your nicotine pouches in your bag.
We recommend keeping them easily accessible, though, as you will no doubt want to use the pouches during your flight.
You Can Also Bring Chewing Tobacco
Most airlines will prohibit passengers from dipping onboard, though.
As Well as Cigarettes and Cigars
You can also bring cigarettes on a plane in both your carry on bags and checked bags with no quantity restrictions on domestic flights.
When flying back to the U.S. from an international destination, you can bring up to 200 cigarettes.
You can also bring cigars on a plane with no quantity restrictions, though you are limited to up to 100 when flying back to the U.S. from an international destination.
