U.K Joins U.S. In Large Devices Ban Photo 1

In the wake of recent terrorist attack on the nation's capital and possibly the ban of the United States on certain electronic devices in airline cabins, the United Kingdom is also enforcing a ban on some devices on direct flights from certain Middle East nations which includes Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia.

The ban applies to any device larger than 16cm long, 9.3cm wide or 1.5cm deep, which will include laptops, tablets, portable DVD players, games consoles, e-readers and some smartphones, although most fall within these limits. Devices that do not meet the allowed criteria, must be checked in as a regular luggage to avert the possibility of using them to cause havoc on air.

According to Sky News, the move is “not a reaction to a specific intelligence threat, rather a response to the ongoing general threat to aviation.” The government has not given a start-date for the ban, but says airlines are "in the process of implementing it".

This ban means that business passengers that would otherwise get some work done during the flight will be unable to, as they'll be without their laptops and tablets, although some airlines are finding a way to reduce the inconvenience for some section of their passengers.
