The UK government has lifted the ban on larger phones, laptops and tablets from being taken into the aircraft cabin for all flights from Istanbul Ataturk and Dalaman airports in Turkey.
The move means that there are now no restrictions for these electronic devices on all flights from Turkey to the UK.
The restrictions on larger electronic items being taken onboard aircraft was put in place in March 2017 on direct flights to the UK from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia, due to security fears.
Over the past 18 months, the UK government has been gradually removing this laptop ban from specified airports and airlines after they introduced additional security measures.
There are now no restrictions on all UK-bound flights from Antalya, Bodrum, Cairo, Dalaman, Hurghada, Istanbul Ataturk, Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen, Izmir, Luxor, Marsa Alam and Tunis-Carthage International.
“Restrictions have also been lifted on a number of individual airlines operating from other airports,” said the Department for Transport in a statement.
“The vast majority of carriers operating from airports in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Lebanon are no longer subject to these restrictions. Passengers should contact their airlines for advice about whether their flights are affected.”
The laptop ban still applies on some flights from Jeddah and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Amman in Jordan and the Lebanese capital Beirut.
