How to bring matches back on a flight from Israel?
« on: April 05, 2019, 08:43:42 AM »
My wife has a special shabbos matchbox and my daughter wanted to bring back the extra long matches they sell in Israel.

TSA says that you can bring a box in your carry on but I find no information for flying internationally.

She will be flying Finnair and connecting out of Helsinki.

Any information would be helpful, thanks!

TSA says that you cannot do that. Do you know if the rules are different when flying Internationally?

I've flown internationally with a lighter in my pocket, not sure if that's different than matches.

Ok, so they sell them for $4, and in many kosher stores in the US, just saying, it's not something unique to Israel that it needs to be schlepped back.

These are the correct size.

The problem is that my daughter wanted to buy something for my wife and my wife did not want her to spend $$$ so she bought what my wife asked for. I don't want my daughter to be disappointed, so I am looking for an eitza on this about how she can bring them back.

Imagine not having the lighter, that means no smoking throughout the entire duration of the trip, torture.
 Inhumane. :)

DH brought home from Israel a shabbos matches box (as a gift) with matches inside. It was in his checked-in suitcase, and he had no issues...

+1 I've flown many times with a lighter and/or matches in my pocket and had no issues going through security.

had my Memorable lighter and expensive battery pack removed from my luggage in New Zealand.

Though may not be relevant here as this is the other side of the world
