New Airport Security Rules for Mobile Devices

Effective immediately, travellers passing through airport security may be asked to turn on any electronic or battery-powered device to prove its functionality. If the device doesn’t turn on, it may be confiscated or the passenger may be denied boarding. With this in mind, it’s more important than ever to make sure all electronic devices are fully charged before leaving home and travellers don’t run the battery flat while in transit or onboard the aircraft. All of these items must also becarried in hand-luggage only.

Why are these changes happening?

The extra security measures have been implemented due to concerns about a heightened terrorism threat to aviation, particularly concerning flights to, from or via the United States and United Kingdom. Electronic devices are being targeted by security as they have the potential to be concealed as hidden explosives.
