Cigar Q&A: Flying with Cigars
Q. If I am buying a box of cigars overseas, what is the best way to store the cigars whilst traveling on an airplane?
– Michael in Australia
A. Assuming you’re not bringing Cuban cigars into the U.S., which could be confiscated at Customs, I would purchase a travel humidor. They’re air and water tight, and keep your cigars really fresh. When flying with cigars, I also recommend storing them in your carry-on so they’re traveling under “normal” conditions, as opposed to the freezing temperatures in the baggage compartment. The typical travel humidor holds 5 or 10 cigars, but there are plenty of selections that hold enough cigars for a really big herf.
