I am planning to go camping abroad. I am taking a camping stove, but I am not sure I can take the gas bottle (kind of like this one)

Of course I can buy one at the destination, but I am not sure where and how I will find one. It would be more practical just to carry it.

Am I allowed to carry this in the check-in luggage?

  • IMO you're not allowed to do this. In the container there will be some gas residue

OK, this question is for the gas bottle, the other one was for the camping stove.

For the gas bottle, it's clearly no.

Prohibited Items on TSA.gov
Check the website of any airline and i think you will find it in the list of things you can't take.
