Can you bring Kimchi on Planes?

Picture this: You're a Kimchi enthusiast, and you can't bear the thought of leaving your beloved Kimchi behind when you jet off on a vacation. But, can you bring Kimchi on planes without causing a stink? Let's unravel the mysteries of traveling with this cherished Korean dish.Kimchi, a flavourful blend of fermented vegetables and spices, is known for its distinctive taste and probiotic goodness. When it comes to bringing it on a plane, there are a few things to keep in mind.JIN KimchiThe good news is that, in most cases, you can bring Kimchi on planes without any problems. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allows solid foods like Kimchi in your carry-on or checked baggage. 

Things to consider: 

  • Sealing is Key: To prevent odours from escaping, ensure your Kimchi container is well-sealed. Double-bagging it in airtight containers can be a smart move.
  • Check Airline Policies: While the TSA generally permits Kimchi, individual airlines may have their own restrictions or recommendations. It's advisable to check with your airline before your flight.

Travel Tips:

  1. Choose Wisely: Opt for Kimchi with a milder odour. Younger Kimchi or varieties with fewer spices tend to be less pungent.
  2. Pack It Right: Use resealable plastic bags or better glass containers, and place them inside a sturdy, leak-proof plastic bag or glass container to contain any potential spills.
  3. Keep It Cool: If your flight is long or during hot weather, consider bringing a small cooler bag with ice packs to keep your Kimchi fresh and odour-contained.
