I don't really know but I'm pretty sure that you can't bring them with you inside the plane. I doubt it's a problem in your luggage although they are paranoid these days so it wouldn't be surprising at all.

Last year (acutally two years ago now) West Jet to Hawaii....

They asked if I had any CO2 cartridges in my checked bike box....they said I couldn't take them....

I said no I have an air pump, so I was good to go.
