Enhanced security measures - All Flights ex UK

Source: Travelmole - 9th July 2014

In addition to the news regarding additional checks on electronic equipment on flights between the US and the UK, we have now been advised that these checks will also be in place for any flights departing the UK to any destination for the forseeable future from today.

  • Electronic devices in hand baggage
  • Please be prepared to show that you can power up your device at security checks.  If you cannot do this, you will not be able to travel with that device.

  • Electronic devices in Hold baggage
  • If you are planning to travel with electronic devices in your hold baggage, this must be declared at check in or fast bag drop.  The check in agent may require you to power up the item before allowing it on board.

  • Connecting Flights
  • If you have a connecting flight, please ensure that you still have enough power in your device prior to boarding your second flight, or boarding may be denied.

  • Fully charged
  • Make sure your devices are all fully charged before travelling as there will be high demand for charging facilities in the airport.

We recommend that you check your airline's website for the latest news prior to travelling.
