AVIATION SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
We have today been notified of new aviation security measures that will be introduced on all inbound direct flights to the UK from the following countries:
- Saudi Arabia
Advice for Customers
People travelling to/from the affected countries who are travelling with phones, laptops and tablets larger than length: 16.0cm / width: 9.3cm / depth: 1.5cm are advised to:
- Comply with the new security arrangements
- Contact their travel insurance company ahead of travel as these devices are typically not covered by travel insurance policies either for loss, damage or theft when in the hold.
- Consider leaving their larger electronic devices at home but we appreciated that may be difficult
- Customers travelling with these items who are travelling with hand baggage only are advised to liaise with their airline to make arrangements for checked baggage.
