A portable fan can be carried from one place to another.
It is a fan that is not permanently fixed to the wall or ceiling. Portable fans are available in all shapes and sizes. They range from tiny battery-powered fans that can be held in the hand to large box fans that are used to ventilate an entire room.
Using a portable fan is a good way to keep the air moving, moderate the room temperature or supplement the use of an air conditioner to save power.
A neck fan is a type of portable fan. They are popular summer gadgets that are worn around the neck to fight off the heat. A neck fan cools the head, face and neck and is basically a battery-powered fan mounted inside a flexible, U-shaped neck support in such a way that the internal blades are positioned near the skin.
The mechanism allows cool air to blow out of a ring of mini vents that remain positioned nearly 360 degrees around the neck.
Many neck fans are bladeless, which means that their blades are hidden inside the casing of the fan.Since a neck fan does not have to be held in the hand, it is regarded as a clever invention by those who want a breeze to cool them down while they remain on the go, such as joggers, delivery workers or just people who love the outdoors.
Most neck fans weigh less than 10 ounces and measure less than 8 inches long by 8 inches wide by 3 inches deep.
Since the internal blades are 3 inches or less they aren’t a threat to the aircraft and can be carried on the aircraft as carry-on or checked baggage on national and international flights. To be doubly sure, you should check with the airline you’re flying with.
Fans that have lithium batteries are, however, not allowed in checked luggage but can be carried along as part of carry-on luggage.
Lithium batteries can overheat and explode and become a risk if placed in the cargo hold with other luggage. So some airlines prefer that passengers carry the lithium battery with them on the flight. Since the cabin is air conditioned, the risk is minimized. Since you will either use the neck fan or keep it close to you, if something goes wrong, you will know immediately. Therefore, the overall risk of an accident is reduced.
As far as the size of the neck fan is concerned, larger neck fans can be taken on a plane as a carry-on item provided the guidelines of your airline and type of travel are followed.
But as a rule of thumb, if your fan fits in your bag, under your seat, or in the overhead baggage area, you can bring the fan. Most neck fan brands in the market meet these requirements. Neck fans are compact and lightweight enough and therefore easily transported as part of carry-on luggage. The bottom line is that neck fans are allowed on the aircraft as they are safe. Hence, they are allowed on planes carrying passengers, cargo or mail.
You can wear and switch on your neck fan on your flight and also keep your neck fan running while you nap on the flight. Even if you recline in your seat, your neck fan will stay in place, keeping you cool throughout the flight.
Another big advantage of neck fans is that they come with USB ports that can be charged. But bear in mind that you may not be able to adequately recharge a neck fan mid-flight. So, it may be better to fully charge your fan before you board the airplane. But you don’t have to worry as best-in-market neck fans come with long-lasting batteries.
Also, check for the noise control feature when buying a neck fan as loud neck fans will annoy co-passengers and also deprive you of sleep.
Some neck fans are known as cold fans because they blow very cold air. They can lower your body temperature quickly and may not be suitable for use on an aircraft as the cabins are already air conditioned and can get chilly, especially at night. Also, if the passengers seated next to you turn on the overhead air conditioning vents, you might freeze.
Neck fans can also be carried on small passenger airplanes that follow the same safety rules as the bigger aircrafts. They can also be carried on light, personal aircraft.
In fact, neck fans are great for staying cool on long flights and taking away the dry, stuffy feeling is often the direct result of airplane air conditioning. Neck fans on long flights will keep you comfortable and non-sweaty for hours. Hence, they make a great flight accessory!
But if you’re headed to Disney World, can you carry your neck fan along? The short answer is YES. Neck fans will keep you cool during your walks in the park.
If you’re still wondering, here is a list of items that are prohibited to be carried inside Disney World. They are:
- Wagons and coolers
- Alcohol, marijuana, and illegal drugs.
- Folding chairs.
- Selfie Sticks

- Extra-large strollers
- Segways or any sort of mobility device that doesn’t have at least 3 wheels.

So go ahead and pack your neck fan in, without a doubt.
