British Airways is one of the carriers affected by the new ban

It seems like soon, no airline will allow electronics on board!

The British government has announced a cabin baggage ban on laptops on direct passenger flights to the UK from 6 countries, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia, reports BBC.

Fortunately, the UAE hasn't been affected by this ban. The ban applies to any device larger than 16cm long, 9.3cm wide or 1.5cm deep. It includes smart phones, but most fall inside these limits.

The ban affects the following Airlines, according to BBC:

UK Carriers

  • British Airways
  • EasyJet
  • Jet2.com
  • Monarch
  • Thomas Cook
  • Thomson

Overseas carriers:

  • Turkish Airlines
  • Pegasus Airways
  • Atlas-Global Airlines
  • Middle East Airlines
  • Egyptair
  • Royal Jordanian
  • Tunis Air
  • Saudia

We hope no other country follows suit, and no other airlines are affected!
