can you bring dry ice on a plane?

I need to transport a large amount of frozen human milk...I was told by multiple people that dry ice is the best way to move it...but, can you bring dry ice on a plane as a carry on? If I have to check it how should I go about packing it?

  • I think it depends on the amount you take and it has to go into the luggage areas. My hubby is a pilot and the dry ice lets off so2 {if im not wrong i can't think im preggo and tired} and can asphyxiate you. so you probably can't take it as carry on and it is transported as a chemical..or whatever. how long is the flight and how much milk are you taking? if you have a good enough cooler is should stay frozen. good luck getting more then 3 oz of anything on the plane though, i heard baby bottles are the exception, but its not a "bottle" im not sure. If you really want help figuring this out PM me and i will ask DH in the morning when he gets home he can help you find where to find out, or get the info FOR YOU. HUGS

  • You should check the airlines website or the FAA website. They have many answers to commonly asked questions about what it acceptable to bring aboard.

  • You can check your airports approed and disapproved items or call and ask.

  • dry ice is very dangerous and i doubt they would let you carry it on the plane.
