As a result of the passage of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, the Transportation Security Administration (www.TSA.gov) banned lighters in commercial aircraft cabins, effective April 14, 2005. The Department of Transportation (www.DOT.gov) has granted Prometheus with Special Permit (DOT-SP 14415) for its Lighter Travel Case. Now, you can put one flammable gas fueled lighter or one liquid (oil fluid) metal lighter in Prometheus Travel Case in your checked baggage, and travel with your lighter in commercial aircraft operating in the United States.
