Electronics now permitted on UK-bound flights from Turkey and Tunisia

Restrictions on hand-luggage for most UK-bound flights from Tunisia and Turkey have been lifted. Large phones, laptops and tablets are now permitted in the cabin on flights departing from Turkish airports Antalya, Bodrum, Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen and Iszmir, and from Tunisia’s Tunis-Carthage International.

Restrictions on carrying large phones, laptops, tablets and accessories into the cabin of UK-bound flights from Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon and Tunisia were introduced in March.

However, after working with the aviation industry and international partners to introduce tough additional security measures, the UK government has begun lifting these restrictions on some UK-bound flights.

Aside from Tunisia, flight restrictions still apply on some flights from the restricted countries due to ongoing threats to security. Passengers should contact their airlines for advice about whether their flights are affected.
