You are allowed to carry one “regular” lighter per person, but you must carry it upon your person, e.g. in a jacket pocket.
If you wish to carry a refillable lighter, all liquid in the lighter must be absorbed. You must place the lighter in a separate tray at the security checkpoint so that security personnel can check that it complies with the rules.
