U.K. Expected to Impose Similar Electronic Restrictions For Some Flights

Mar 21, 2017

Britain is expected to issue similar limits on electronic devices for travelers from some airports after the United States imposed restrictions on travelers on U.S. bound flights from 10 airports in eight countries.

U.S. officials briefed on the plan said there are some differences in the UK rules compared with the new American requirements, which ban passengers from taking electronic devices larger than a cellphone in hand luggage from airports in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar and Jordan.
