Restrictions on carrying large phones, laptops, tablets and accessories into the cabin of UK-bound flights from Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Tunisia, introduced in March 2017, have been lifted.



The UK government has lifted these restrictions on UK-bound flights after working with the aviation industry and international partners to introduce tough additional security measures.

Restrictions on carrying large phones, laptops and tablets in the cabin have been lifted on all UK bound flights from the following airports:

  • Amman (Jordan)
  • Antalya (Turkey)
  • Beirut (Lebanon)
  • Bodrum (Turkey)
  • Cairo (Egypt)
  • Dalaman (Turkey)
  • Hurghada (Egypt)
  • Istanbul Atatürk (Turkey)
  • Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (Turkey)
  • Izmir (Turkey)
  • Jeddah (Saudi Arabia)
  • Luxor (Egypt)
  • Marsa Alam (Egypt)
  • Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)
  • Tunis-Carthage International (Tunisia)

Passengers on flights where restrictions have been lifted will now be able to take large phones, laptops, tablets and accessories into the cabin with them.

Normal cabin baggage restrictions will continue to apply.

This information is correct as of 9th January 2019.
