I brought mine on the airplane packed in an insulated lunch bag with a couple of those blue ice things. I didn't have any problems getting through security or anything. I would make sure you keep it in the box with the label stuck to the outside so they can see it's a prescription.

I had to travel with a humira pen. I carried it on with ice packs and a note from my doctor that stated that I'm required to carry the meds.

I ended up putting it in my laptop bag, which went through security. They never opened it or looked at it twice.

Did you get the terrific travel case from the Humira company when you started the med?

Just pack it in the bag with a few (more than one) ice packs. I've travelled about ten hours with mine packed like that, but I wouldn't want to have stretched it any longer than that. If it's a really long trip, perhaps you could take some unfrozen ice packs and ask the plane or train staff to stick it in their freezer, and then give it to you about eight or ten hours into the trip. Keep exchanging the packs as needed until you've reached your destination.
