Yes, you can take one lighter with you onto the plane, they can include:
Survival firelighters are not restricted as they do not contain fuel and do not in themselves generate a flame.
The number and size of lighters are restricted as they contain highly volatile fuel that has low combustion thresholds to limit the harm to passengers and crew if they were to be damaged.
Blue flame lighters are forbidden due to the intensity of the heat they generate. They operate like a small blow torch.
You will be asked to relinquish all dangerous or prohibited items found in your carry-on luggage. If you refuse:
We x-ray bags going on planes to make sure there is nothing dangerous in them. If something comes up on the x-ray that needs checking, the bag will be opened, searched and any dangerous or prohibited item will be removed.
