Bizarre question I know, but I'm traveling to Australia from Canada and want to bring snow in a can for the tree as you can't buy any there. The product is non flammable however is an aerosol can. I hear all international (large) planes are pressurized so it should be fine.. Has anyone else flown with fake snow before? I would have it in checked luggage obviously as I wouldn't need it for the flight ahhaa.

    Before I clicked, I thought this was going to be about a can full of water :) – Zach Lipton Nov 17 '16 at 2:11

    I did a search for "snow in a can spray australia" and got several hits on .au shopping sites that offer it. – Patricia Shanahan Nov 17 '16 at 2:23
  • @Dorothy: I think that list refers to carry-on only. The list here under "Aerosol spray bottles/cans" says aerosols are allowed in checked luggage, but limited to 500ml per can and 2 liters total. So it might depend how large the can is. – Nate Eldredge Nov 17 '16 at 4:09
  • @stevie what airline are you using? – Newton Nov 17 '16 at 4:17
  • There's a different "snow in a can" product which isn't aerosol, but you add water to it and it fluffs up. You should be able to take as much of this as you can fit in your luggage. But I don't think that would work as well for applying to a tree... – Michael Hampton Nov 17 '16 at 4:56

The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority has a master list of allowed and prohibited items. Under "Aerosol spray bottles/cans" it says aerosols are allowed in checked luggage, but limited to 500ml per can and 2 liters total.

So if your can is less than 500 ml, and you have less than 2 liters of aerosols total, then you can put it in your checked luggage.
