Security rules for flights to USA and UK

When travelling to the USA or the UK, make sure the batteries of electronic devices in your hand luggage are fully charged. Electronic devices with empty batteries are not allowed on board. If so, travelers can choose to leave the device behind, or to take a later flight.

The rule applies to any electronic device, not just cell phones or laptops.

Customers may be asked to turn on any electronic or battery powered devices such as telephones, tablets, e-books and laptops in front of security teams and/or demonstrate the item’s functionality.
