Large electronic devices banned from cabins on UK-bound flights

aircraft-1614805_1920The Government has introduced a ban on large electronic devices being taken by passengers into aircraft cabins, as carry-on luggage, on all flights incoming from the following six countries:

  • Turkey
  • Lebanon
  • Jordan
  • Egypt
  • Tunisia
  • Saudi Arabia

It is important to recognise that this ban may affect you if you are travelling on a connecting flight transiting through the named countries (e.g.Istanbul Ataturk Airport). Please take advice from your travel agent or airline before departing.

The University’s insurers have issued a useful guidance note on this change – AIG Aviation Electronics Regulations.
