US and UK ban most electronic devices in cabins
Britain joined the United States on Tuesday in barring passengers travelling from airports in several Middle-East countries from bringing electronic devises on board with them when they fly. Smartphones and medical devices are still allowed, but laptops, tablets and other portable electronic devices must be packed in their checked baggage.
All airlines flying to and from those countries must follow this new measure. The UK ban applies to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. Involved airlines include British Airways and EasyJet. Britons apply the measure to all airports in the mentioned counties.
The US restrictions partly apply to other counties, and to eight in total: Turkey, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan. It specifically mentions the airports. In six countries, the rule applies to any airport in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia for two; Dubai & Abu Dhabi and Riyadh and Jeddah.
