Important information regarding new luggage restrictions

You will be aware of the announcement in March 2017 from the UK government in regards to the new luggage restrictions on electronic gadgets. Due to air travel restrictions on selected routes to the UK, large phones, laptops and gadgets are banned from being taken on inbound direct flights from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. Phones, laptops and tablets larger than 16cm long, 9.3cm wide and 1.5cm in depth will not be allowed in the cabin on selected flights to the UK from the countries affected and will have to be checked in.
Passengers are therefore advised to check online with their airline for further details.
