UK lifts device ban on majority of inbound Middle East flights

  • World

Restrictions placed in March preventing large electronic devices within aircraft cabins on UK bound flights from a number of countries in the Middle East have been relaxed, according to an announcement by the Department of Transport (DoT).

“The vast majority of carriers operating out of these airports are no longer subject to these restrictions,” the announcement filed online by the DoT’s reads.



The restrictions have been removed from all flights originating out of Egypt and Tunisia, as well as Istannbul Sabiha  Gökçen, Antalya, Izmir and Bodrum in Turkey.

Some airlines, on flights originating out of Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Jordan have decided to maintain restrictions on large phones, tablets and laptops, the statement added.

However, the decision “does not reflect security standards at these airports” and is an “operational decision by individual carriers,” it added.



Passengers flying out of the following airports have been asked to check with their airlines on decisions concerning the restrictions: Istanbul Atatürk and Dalaman in Turkey, Jeddah and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Amman in Jordan and Beirut in Lebanon.
